Biography

Axelalex is a solo project that features the music of Alexandre Ribeiro. 

 

Born in Portugal, the singer-songwriter started playing the guitar and writing music by the age of eight years old. As the passion grew along, he decided to study jazz music, enhancing his knowledge towards the world of improvisation.

 

After moving to Aachen - Germany (where he is currently based), Axelalex released his first single “Glassman”, opening the doors to exciting places and to a new phase of his music career, followed by "Mnesic Tape", an EP full of the electronic sounds that bring us back to the past in an urge for celebration and "Broken Staircase", a trip in liminal spaces and the aesthetics of vaporwave.​

His recent work, "Square Shapes"  is a single that marks a shift in his sound and follows his influences in Pop-Rock and New Wave from the 80s and 90s. Icons like “Tears for Fears”, “Billy Idol”, “Foreigner” and many others, were a big inspiration while writing the song. 

For the first time, Axelalex has his voice complementing the spatial and airy instrumentals, and his lyrics embracing the vibes of science fiction.

The song exposes the dangers of the power of technology if they end in the wrong hands and how our perception of the world can be easily twisted.

The track also features Samuel Oliveira on the drums and Helena Proença's cover art, as well as Dirk Neuß, a crucial help in the overall production of the song.
