After a year of developing her debut EP, Southern Californian-born Alix Page shares the powerful new single & music video, “25”; a sun-kissed and romanticised forecast with a past lover, imagining where she’ll run into him and what she’ll say. Written by Page and produced by Brett Kramer of Half Alive, the track is released today, 12th October.
“25 is about reminiscing on a past relationship – going down the rabbit hole of wondering what could have been different and where you’ll both end up later in life.” tells Page. “I wrote it at a time where romanticising the future was the best way to escape everything I was feeling being stuck at home in quarantine. This one is definitely a favorite; in terms of writing and production, I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder of a song.”
At first, 19-year old Page may seem indistinguishable from the average teenager. She has a severe love for skorts, has been dubbed “a pleasure to have in class” on more than one occasion, and still revels in the feeling of seeing someone’s bedroom for the first time. Instantly, Alix Page transforms into the best friend you didn’t know you had. Although ordinary, upon closer examination you’ll find yourself enthralled by Alix’s unconventional inner world, rooted with talents beyond her teenage years.
On ‘25’, she erupts with painful forgiveness, “I hope she was worth it, you’ll get married someday. If she never sees through all the pictures and bullshit. You don’t get the details, like you could deserve it. If I said I was falling then I didn’t mean it”. Although frustrated by her prediction, Page decides to bury the hatchet, “and when I turn 25 don’t wonder why I haven’t called yet. Said I’d come back and find you, don’t know if I’d recognize you now”.
Along with her innate kindness, Page is equipped with a multitude of irrefutable abilities. At 3, she began reciting songs in full to anyone who’d listen. At 5, she found trouble by openly humming during parent-teacher conferences. Page discovered her love of expressing vulnerable emotions through song, backed by her perfect pitch and multi-instrumentalism, branching outwards with each shaping experience in life. For Alix Page, admiring, reflecting upon, and performing each passing moment is an eﬀortless expression of bravery, honesty, and clarity.
Though we all come from unique walks of life, Alix Page proves we are the same type of diﬀerent. Through vulnerability, we find ourselves in common emotional footing from the events we share. Page’s music, shaped by memories and fueled by passion, shares with us her journey as she further falls into her identity, formally known as Alix Page.
