Rex Orange County (AKA Alex O'Connor) attended a school in London that counts Adele and King Krule among its alumni. Legend has it that the 20-year-old from Surrey, England, uploaded his debut album Bcos U Will Never B Free to Bandcamp after finding inspiration in the music of Frank Ocean, Toro y Moi, and Thundercat. Rex Orange County’s second album Apricot Princess is a self-assured (but also charmingly handcrafted) amalgam of Adele’s classic soul sound, Krule’s loungy trip-hop, Ocean’s glassy romanticism, Toro y Moi’s radiant synth-pop, and Thundercat’s forward-thinking funk. There’s other stuff happening on Apricot Princess, too—some slacker rap here, some cuddly punk there—and it’s not hard to hear why Rex Orange County is quite popular with playlist-traveling youngsters. That’s why tonight’s show is sold out.
