Songstress of all things melancholic, Alexandra Savior has returned with the first single “Crying All the Time” from her upcoming second LP The Archer. Continuing her penchant for orchestrating haunting ballads consumed by heartache, Savior’s move to Danger Mouse’s label 30th Century Records and working with producer Sam Cohen has made a visible imprint on the soundscapes of her dirges.
Still channeling the shadowed intimacy of a noir-nightclub shrouded in velvet and smoke—Savior’s latest is a slow-dance through the burning wreckage of a romance long lost. Layered vocalizations mingle with a newly courted electronica—and the dark buzz of those synthetics only add to the ethereal nature of Savior’s lyricism.
Savior might’ve found her niche on her 2017 debut Belladonna of Sadness, but in the years since she’s faced down the end of both a romantic relationship and being dropped by her previous label. And yet emerging from that, Savior has found something in the despondency of her predicament and—by the sound of “Crying All the Time”—come into her own as a singer/songwriter for her second album.
“I wrote ‘Crying All The Time’ on New Year’s Day 2018, I had moved back home to Portland after a rough relationship,” Savior said of the song. “After being dropped from my previous record label I started attending community college and about two weeks in 30th Century reached out and offered for me to go to NYC and have a new record produced by Sam Cohen. We spent about 3 weeks recording The Archer in his studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn, it felt very natural to work with Sam because he is an incredibly kind man, and incredibly talented musician and producer.”
