New Alex Lahey video: Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself

Video: Alex Lahey – “Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself”

Directed by Callum Preston. From The Best Of Luck Club, out May 17 on Dead Oceans.

Australian Alex Lahey writes smart pop songs and makes funny videos. And in the first single from her new album, she’s got an important message for all the overachievers out there.

You haven’t had a day off in weeks
Your voice is shaking when you speak
It might not be my place to help
But don’t be so hard on yourself

Self-care, people. When things get stressful it’s more important than ever to find a way to take it easy. Even if that includes whipping out a ripping sax solo!

New Alex Lahey video: I Love You Like a Brother

Video: Alex Lahey – “I Love You Like a Brother”

From I Love You Like A Brother, out now on Dead Oceans.

I’m an only child so I don’t totally get the whole sibling thing. But it looks like Melbourne’s Alex Lahey gets along really well her little brother.

You don’t like sports and I don’t like dresses
Luckily for us, our parents got the message
Always say “No” to combat my yeses
You know me better than I give you credit

The video combines old footage of them as kids with current scenes of them hanging out and goofing off together like, I suppose, only siblings do.

This is just the second Alex Lahey song I’ve heard (after “Every Day’s The Weekend”), but based on these two songs I think I’m going to have to check out the album. She’s obviously awesome.
