Born and raised in Toronto, Canada Alex Frew gravitated towards music as an emotional outlet from an early age. He began playing piano at six, picked up the guitar at nine, and by the time he was fifteen, he was writing songs full of honest emotion. Starting 2021 off with an awe-inspiring bang, Alex Frew brings us his new “Cobalt” EP.
Cobalt narrates feelings that most are afraid to talk about. From heartache, self-growth, discovering one’s self and the long journey to adulthood, Frew brings a mesmerizing array of lyrics to the EP that his continuously growing fanbase will resonate with. A distinct urgency to live life in the moment and appreciate the present is a pillar on Cobalt, bringing forth the importance of not getting caught up in things outside of one’s control. Cobalt, comprised of six songs all pertaining to Frew’s intoxicating melodies, is truly a remarkable debut for him, showcasing his mature perspective and raw self-examination. Emotion and truth speak volumes in this EP and is done in a beautifully dark and dreamy production.
“Cobalt is the colour I associate to all of emotions and the entire sonic palette of the EP,” Alex Frew adds of the EP title. “Dealing with introversion, depression, substance abuse, and search for romance. The colour Cobalt represents the moody, blue emotion that inspired the creation of this project, and has stuck with me for the past several years.” – Alex Frew
