As we say goodbye to 2016, a year which I unaffectionately deem “The Year of Horribles”, I can only keep my fingers crossed and look forward to those things that will brighten my days in the coming year. I’ve got April 7, 2017 marked in my calendar as a day to look forward to. Why? Because that’s the date Alexandra Savior debut album, “Belladonna of Sadness” (Columbia Records), will be released.

On November 30, 2016, Ms. Savior opened for Daughter at The Wiltern. This concert will have been the third concert of her’s that we’ve covered this year, and we’d like to note that of all of the artist’s we’ve posted about, she is the artist who seems to pop up most frequently on the site. There’s a good reason for that. This 22 year old singer-songwriter has got the goods.

After co-penning several compositions with Arctic Monkeys’ frontman Alex Turner (“Risk” and “Miracle Aligner”), Ms. Savior took this past year to fine tune her live show, seemingly performing non-stop since June, and had new listeners fall in lover with her lush melodies and darkly quirky lyrics. She continued her tour of attraction with yet another enchanting performance on this evening.

With L.A.’s own PAPA once again backing her, the petite Ms. Savior casually wandered to center stage under the dimly lit magenta lights from above and proceeded to enchant. She doesn’t move much on stage, save the maracas she occasionally shakes for several numbers and the delicate sways to the music that clearly takes her to another realm. But with Ms. Savior, it’s her music that captures our imagination. It’s the sonic wash of coy mystery inherent in the instrumentation, and the dulcet tones of her soothingly relaxed vocals that we as the listener just want to keep peeling back to learn more. Hopefully, we’ll all be able to learn a little more about Alexandra Savior come April 7, 2017.
