Alex Napping, But Don't Sleep on Their New Single

In the days just leadin' up to South By this year, Alex Napping, that band with a sound as cute as its name, gave the internet a new single called "Trembles Part I," which is already making a bit of a stir. In the vein of last year's This Is Not a Bedroom, which we suggested you get into back in October, "Trembles Part I" is another jubilant nod to the glory days of jangly, sunshine-set 90s indiepop. It starts all Pavement-esque guitar and crashing cymbals, and then bounces into something akin to a much less difficult Deerhoofish (that word right there, that was fun to type) experimental, bright and exciting guitar pop sound. This is just a very well balanced song, from band namesake Alex Cohen's lovely light, pretention-less voice to the interest-grabbing tempo changes to the on-spot instrumentation, and it shows just how true it is that Alex Napping is one of Austin's top indiepop bands to watch in 2015. Get on into it.

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
