Yes Alexander

A Deli NYC premiere: Yes Alexander's video for "Fever"

It wouldn't be correct to state that Brooklyn based electronic chanteuse Yes Alexander (who happened to live in Iceland for a long time) has an "icy" voice, but there is definitely an icy quality to her music in general and to her vocal tone in particular. We are premiering here the video for song "Fever," which certainly plays with with the idea of cold both visually and conceptually: a bleak, wintry night becomes a metaphor of the author's spiritual desolation, caused by love that's either lost or never found - a love whose warmth is desperately needed: "I need your fever inside me this evening..." The beautiful final scene - some kind of lynchian peep show in the middle of nowhere between lovers unable to communicate - suddenly reveals that one side of the room is missing, opening unexpectedly an entire wall to optimism. To promote the new album "KIANITE," released today, Yes Alexander will bring her heart wrenching cold wave on tour in the next month and a half.


Icelandic electronic solo act Yes Alexander plays Deli CMJ show at Pianos on 09.17

Is Happiness Just a Word” — an electro/hip-hop single by androgynous, Icelandic, Brooklyn based chanteuse Yes Alexander and emcee Vinny Paz — re-treads Dido/Eminem territory, minus the forced kinship. She sings full-bodied and optimistically; he wrestles fatalism in earnest lines like: “I don't wanna be dead/Dead don't work.” Elsewhere, Alexander leans heavily Bjork-like, especially on "Kyanite," her unreleased EP currently making the NYC club rounds. Check out single "Fooled" from last year's release, and see her live at Pianos' upstairs lounge on 09.17, within The Deli's official CMJ electronic stage. - Brian Chidester
