(Sandy) Alex G is building up to the release of his new album House of Sugar on September 13th, and judging by the reception he got at his recent London appearance, his fans are very excited too. Today he gives us another teaser of what we all want with a new track called 'Hope'.

An apt title for pretty much any Alex G song, 'Hope' captures Giannascoli's idiosycratically seasick sound perfectly. He sings beleagueredly along with his rapid guitar strums, huffing through unpleasant memories of an old friend who took a few wrong turns. Adding to the bittersweet mixture is a thread of synth that takes a few wobbly pirouettes through the track, just adding a depth to Alex's perfect poignancy.

House of Sugar comes out through Domino on September 13th. If you missed (Sandy) Alex G on his limited recent solo tour have no fear, he'll be back in the UK and Europe with his band on these dates in 2020:
