Alix Page very much embodies the girl-next-door character, but beyond that, she’s like an unlicensed therapist who manages to solve our problems with her touching lyricism. Wise beyond her years, the 19-year-old from Southern California will make you feel understood without even knowing anything about you. Inspired by a fever dream, Page wows us again with her beautifully delicate new single, “Radiohead.”
Whether you’re reminiscing about the past or imagining what could’ve been in an alternate dimension, “Radiohead” will ignite something deep in your soul. It’d be remiss to not acknowledge the overwhelmingly stunning strings arrangement in “Radiohead,” but equally noteworthy is Page’s impeccable pitch. The accompanying video offers an intimate performance of “Radiohead” that ends with Page smashing her acoustic guitar in frustration.
On “Radiohead,” Alix Page reflected,
“‘[Radiohead]’ is proof that you can be completely over someone and then have a dream about them and fall right back into feelings you didn’t know you still had. Around this time last year, I had a dream about me and an ex moving into an apartment and painting it together. We hadn’t spoken in months and I genuinely hadn’t thought about it in a while but it felt SO scarily real. I woke up flustered and heard the whole thing in my head before I even got out of bed; I wrote the first verse and chorus right away.”
