Our new selection for DOPEST Video of the Week, “Swimming Pools”, comes from 21-year Berlin based singer-songwriter Lxandra.
Lxandra’s passion for singing started from a young age, and her visit to Finnish producer Perttu Kurttila in Berlin in early 2015 was a turning point in her life. "We wrote a few songs together, including my first single 'Flicker'. After that, I knew it was something I wanted to do forever", she explains.
Lxandra is a self-assured young woman who knows exactly what she wants and this is clear from her art. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered, from her outfits to the visuals of her videos. In her songs, she combines electronic influences with classical piano, while powerful choruses meet atmospheric, gentle sounds.
The indie musician recently caused a stir with her gentle piano ballad “Hush Hush Baby”, a song that was originally a birthday present for her mother. Her debut single “Flicker”, which was released in early 2017, has nearly reached the 1 million mark on Spotify and her follow up single “Dig Deep” has surpassed the 4 million mark. Right now, Lxandra is working on her debut album, which will be released by the end of this year.
