Alex Lahey -- I Love You Like A Brother

“Lotto in Reverse” by Alex Lahey

I’ve gushed about the Australian music scene over and over, so it should come as no surprise I’ve selected another talented Aussie for today’s featured track: Melborne native and Dead Oceans-signee Alex Lahey. “Lotto In Reverse” is the song, from the artist’s debut album I Love You Like A Brother, due out October 6.

It’s a snarling rock track about a soured long-distance relationship, with Lahey sounding fierce while dropping bombs on a newly-former love (“Oh, you didn’t want me back the same/You’re so fucked up anyway”) and reaffirming that she’s better off alone. Check it out below — and keep your ears peeled for that slinking bassline. I love it.
