Alex Napping

Alex Napping

Self-proclaimed “4-piece foxy-pop band,” Alex Napping have labeled themselves correctly. Peppy indie-pop like Best Coast and Tennis can become tiring; Austin’s Alex Napping follows the same endearing formula but have a fresh energy with a tinge of 90s angst. The track “Kill The Lights” has malaise lyrics mixed with short and sweet guitar riffs that are ripe with Pavement influences. And that’s a good thing. Singer Alex Cohen knows how to make you feel vulnerable with her timid yet positive delivery. Guitarist Adrian Haynes, bassist Tomas Garcia-Olano, and drummer Andrew Stevens bring the foxiness to the next level. Released in late September This Is Not A Bedroom is their six-song debut album. The perfect length to watch the Austin autumn sunset, with a tall can of Lone Star of course. -Allison Mayoral
