Swedish pop sensation Alex Alexander is here with his highly anticipated EP, the scintillating electro-pop and Latin-inspired Helpless.

The 5-track Helpless EP is a song-cycle of electronic ballads that blend a number of different sub-genres while staying under a melodic umbrella. It's a pristine demonstration of Alexander's sound, which is highlighted by bouncy rhythms, acoustic guitar plucks, and raw, emotive vocals. 

Alexander kicks things off with the project's title track, a tropical-inspired pop and moombah hybrid that will have listeners yearning for the sun-kissed, utopian vibes of summer. The ensuing single "Lyin' Eyes" is a downtempo electronic bop dripping with soul due to its seductive, beguiling horns, lending to a soulful ballad that evokes lipstick stains and red velvet.

Before introducing fans to her next chapter, Goulding dug into the vault.

The third track, "Don't Make Me," is an electronic slow-burner that churns along to a hypnotic 95 BPM while showcasing the nuanced peaks and valleys of Alexander's vocal stylings. He follows with "Breaking Down The Wall," a beautiful R&B-inspired jam that blends elements of bluegrass and dream pop, before closing out the EP with the Refeci remix of "Don't Make Me," which gives the original a gritty synth-pop edge.

Up to this point, Alex Alexander has released 25 singles, amassing over 70 million streams and establishing himself as a bona fide artist to watch in the international pop scene. Moreover, he is setting himself up for a monster 2020 not only with the release of Helpless, but also with a big move to Los Angeles. As Latin-inspired music continues to permeate the dance music industry, Alex Alexander is poised to mark his territory.
