Malaysian artist alextbh has debuted a brand new single titled ‘Moments’.
‘Moments’ comes alongside the announcement of Alex’s debut EP, The Chase, set for a June 12 release via Empire. A skilled songwriter and producer, much of The Chase is self-written and produced and marks the culmination of a breakout year for the rising artist, whose single releases have amassed 40 million+ Spotify streams.
‘Moments’ is a bold display of alextbh’s ability to merge modern R&B with an underlying pop sensibility that is equally inventive as it is brazenly raw. Speaking on the track, Alex notes, “The prelude to the next chapter of my story, ‘Moments’ explores the strained duality arising from being bruised in the aftermath of a broken romance and attempting to avoid channeling that negative energy into the next one (though not always succeeding). It’s a vicious cycle, but one easy to fall into; this song uncovers that dilemma.”
This spring, Alex was featured on BBC’s Music Life alongside Yuna and mxmtoon. On the live side, Alex has already shared stages with the likes of Khalid, Sevdaliza, and Jess Connelly, and most recently joined Yuna as direct support on her European tour. He has also played festivals such as Good Vibes Festival in Malaysia, Laneway Festival in Singapore, and Lalala Festival in Indonesia, and is confirmed to play Jakarta’s We The Fest 2020.
“Moments” follows December single “superstore,” a sultry downtempo track that sparked love from outlets like FLAUNT and Billboard, and he performed the track in a live session for MTV Asia as their April 2020 Spotlight Artist.
Running off a string of successful single releases, including early track “Stoop So Low,” which has garnered 20 million+ streams alone, Alex is poised for a big year. Previous singles “still mine” “walls,” “no space,” have also landed Alex multiple covers on Spotify Malaysia’s ‘New Music Friday‘ playlist:
