Australian singer-songwriter Alex Lahey first broke through in 2016 with her hit 'You Don't Think You Like People Like Me', a poppy punk anti-anthem. Lahey's debut album 'I Love You Like a Brother' and its 2019 follow-up, 'The Best of Luck Club', had relationships as themes, but with her latest record 'The Answer Is Always Yes' Lahey analyzes her otherness through different lenses, from the isolating effect to the surrealism and humor it brings.
Dynamic and surprising
As a queer person, Lahey learned to adapt to a world that wasn't made for her, and with her third album she explores how she finds comfort in discomfort, whether that's by reveling in absurdity or focusing on the discovering new things. Lahey also consciously chose to collaborate for the first time with other writers and producers in the early stages of this album's creative process, such as producer and mixer Jacknife Lee (known for his work with U2 and Snow Patrol). The result is not only Lahey's most cooperative album to date, but also its most dynamic and surprising.
