Australian musician Alex the Astronaut is fast becoming a regular visitor to the blog. Following on from Banksia in June, she’s back with the more uplifting sounds of Christmas in July.

The track, which she discloses is about the ‘delirious stupor of falling in love,’ is pure joy to listen to. A charming, old-fashioned quality inhabits the song as if a classic rock and roll melody of the ‘50s has suddenly revealed itself to the world for the first time. Lyrically and vocally, Alex draws out the plainness and wonder of falling in love, and how the most ordinary things acquire a magic, mystic sheen when viewed through the eyes of someone who knows they are adored.

Alex says about the song, “I met someone and it felt like Christmas had come and I’d won the lottery at the same time. I feel like she took all the things that I knew and really flipped them on their head which was exactly what I needed.”
