Info

Alex Lahey is an Australian singer-songwriter from Melbourne.

In 2016, Lahey won the Josh Pyke Partnership. Her track "You Don't Think You Like People Like Me" received Pitchfork's Best New Track Award[1] and was featured in the Triple J Hottest 100 of 2016. Lahey subsequently also won a Triple J Unearthed prize, leading to a slot to perform at Splendour in the Grass and a nomination for a J Award for Unearthed Artist of the Year. Lahey's EP B-Grade University was then released later that year.[2]

In January 2017, Lahey signed to Dead Oceans Records which re-released her B-Grade University EP.[3] By October 6, 2017, she was able to release her debut album, I Love You Like a Brother, through her own independent label, Nicky Boy Records.[4] The album ended up in several year-end albums-of-the-year lists, including those by Bandcamp Daily,[5] Noisey,[6] the Sydney Morning Herald,[7] Under the Radar, BrooklyVegan, and redbull.com.[8] Spin Magazine would also cite the album as one of the magazine's 13 "Favorite Overlooked Albums of 2017".[9] After touring Australia through October 2017, Lahey then took her live show worldwide in performances set across the US and Europe between December 8, 2017 and April, 2018.[10]
