Ethereal singer-songwriter Frex returns with her tender new single ‘Oxford Circus’ via Boom.Records. A sentimental ballad, the lo-fi single is a cathartic piece finding the LA-based artist exploring vulnerability and yearning for affection. Much like what we’re used to hearing from Frex, ‘Oxford Circus’ draws listeners in with a somber yet melodic serenade displaying sultry vocals and poignant emotion as she ruminates on long-distance love. The reminiscent ode highlights Frex’s fragile harmonies, touching on faded memories in Oxford, London.
Speaking on the track, Frex shared, “This is the first song I’ve ever released that I played guitar on, so that’s special to me. This song came together so naturally in the studio that we didn’t even add anything after the session—just touched up the mix. It came together in about 3 hours from scratch. Start to finish. I recorded it in Brixton, and it was amazing to be able to capture the atmosphere while I was there. I love London, and I can’t wait to go back.”
Channeling raw emotions in her music, Frex started making ripples with her nostalgic 2018 debut album “blu.” The R&B-tinged artist further expounds on her musical ethos as she draws inspiration from Rihanna, Usher, and Ne-yo.
