Life in Pastel 

I know for sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from Alec Lee in the future.

Our favourite up-and-coming singer-songwriter has just dropped his newest EP, Life in Pastel, and let me tell you…this mixtape is FIRE.

This 4 song release from our boy Alec Lee is perfect for your summer playlist. This EP shows more of the transition from simple acoustics to clever, ear-wormy electronics. Life in Pastel is also the second installment of a 3-part release, the follow up to the 2016’s NewLifeOldFriends.

The track on this EP that had me the most excited was “I’ll Be Ready”, the album’s opening track. The song starts with a snappy and simple tune and escalates into a dance-able, very catchy chorus. Now, this is a special shout out to my OG Alec stans- let me tell you, this song has been a long time coming. This song was teased on Periscope sessions and now that it’s finally here, I’m eternally grateful.

The following track, “Can’t Live Without You”, was was released a few days prior to the EP, acting as a single. This song is more heartfelt than the first, but does not miss out on any of Lee’s classic electronic sound. However, I think the most special thing about this track is that it’s a duet with his sister Shelby. They both sound fantastic, and the longing, heartbreaking vocals truly make this a song worth coming back to over and over again.

The third song, “Found You”, is a sweet, hopeful tune that is perfect for a late night drive down the coast, worthy of back to back volume up, windows down jam sessions. The EP closes with the ballad, “Lately”, which is definitely a change in pace compared to the rest of the release. Although the track is somber and places heavy emphasis on a soft piano arrangement, it’s also refreshing. It features slightly distorted vocals which adds a smooth rhythm. It’s a perfect way to close out such a gem of a release, and I know for sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from Lee in the future.

Craving some new music? Look no further.

Alec Lee is a Napa Valley native singer-songwriter and producer who started his career roughly seven years ago. He is known for combining electronics, acoustics and so much more.

His first EP M was released in the summer of 2015. The EP boasted standout tracks like “Don’t Let Go” and “M”. This EP brought an acoustic feel to the table which was very reminiscent of Ed Sheeran‘s early work (there’s even an Ed cover on his Youtube channel. Coincidence?)

However, his second EP NewLifeOldFriends (released in late 2016), saw a switch from the acoustic coffee shop vibes to a more electronic, atmospheric feel. To get a taste of his newer releases, check out “Mess” and “LikeYouWant”.

Earlier this year, Alec Lee was announced as a part of the lineup for BottleRock Napa Valley, which is a weekend-long festival that takes place in the Bay Area. If you’re attending the festival, make sure not to miss his set! To get a taste for Alec’s live performances, here is footage from the NewLifeOldFriends EP release show.

NewLifeOldFriends is the first installment of a three-part project, so keep your eyes out for new releases!
