Alxndr London is one of the most exciting and important artists in the city’s musical landscape right now. Cultishly pursuing his own, unrestrained musical trajectory, the singer/songwriter from East London is exploring the thin veil between fantasy and reality; from alternative soul to experimental electronica. 

 A true creative whilst maintaining an unmistakable warmth and character caught the eye of BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac, who featured him on her 'New Names to Watch 2016’ list at the end of 2015. The long-awaited debut body of work, the “A Long Time Ago” EP traces Alxndr’s new journey through experimental jazz and soul, whilst also playing back to his earlier, purer R&B style of "Jupiter & Pluto" and “Harrison”. Such is Alxndr’s presence on the underground, even though he wasn’t performing at this year’s inaugural Afropunk London festvial, he still caused one of the biggest stirs at Alexandra Palace, picking up coverage with i-D, NOISEY and AFROPUNK themselves for his flamboyant style and general ability to stop people in their tracks. Just as well as he’s been confirmed to play there next year. 

 The EP is an expressive, invigorating and cerebral explorative journey through the R&B, soul and electronica genres, bristling with surprises and unexpected touches. Alxndr has now confirmed his first headline London show at The Nines, in Peckham, 15 November 2016.
