Alex Lahey shares “Sucker for Punishment,” announces tour
Australian indie rocker Alex Lahey released her sophomore album, The Best of Luck Club, last year via Dead Oceans, and now she's following it with a new single, "Sucker for Punishment." "We're living in an era where the micro has become the macro," Alex says. "I don't think there has ever been a time where our actions and attitudes as individuals have had such an impact on broader humanity and the planet. Whether it's a ‘think about it later’ attitude towards climate change, the undemocratic consequences of sharing personal data to big business online, a lethargicness in the face of political engagement or the need to be validated as a worthwhile individual through obtaining arbitrary units of engagement on social media - we need to catch ourselves out before we suffer greater consequences." Listen below.
Alex also announced a West Coast tour, with dates in California, Oregon and Washington in May and June. See all dates below.
