Ontario’s Alexander Wesley is back at it again, folks. With more determination than ever before, this multifaceted charmer continues to build his evergrowing discography with the most relatable coming-of-age stories. Waiting for the day that his timeless songs are featured in a rom com soundtrack, Wesley delivers an uplifting new single, “19.”
Every bit of “19” is delicate to the touch, but Wesley’s star-studded vocals really take the cake. Not only is this bittersweet track nostalgic and thoughtful, but it’s almost as if “19” literally transports us back to the first time we fell in love. More than anything, “19” has us desperate to hear what else Wesley has in store for us.
On “19,” Alexander Wesley reflected,
“‘19’ was written about that unconditional, euphoric, and at times amusing state of being young and in love. It’s the kind of love that makes you forget everything else exists. When I sat down to write it, I remember reflecting on what it was like to be at that stage in my life; how innocent and pure every aspect of it was. It’s something for me that’s hard to forget, and I hope those who listen will be taken back to those very moments that inspired the song.”
