Alex Spinney is a British singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from South London. After releasing his debut single ‘I Remember’ last year, Alex returns in 2022 with the soulful offering ‘Boodiyayay’. A finger-clicking swinging track, ‘Boodiyayay’ flaunts Alex’s lush silvery vocals, which seamlessly float across a hypnotic blues-folk inflected soundscape.
“To me, this song is a cathartic, revenge-filled anthem, detailing the brutal end of a pretty rocky relationship, which ended in a particularly cruel way.” Alex shares on the meaning behind the track
The track’s inception all started with a voice note that Alex left on his phone when the riff for what later became ‘Boodiyayay’ came to him. The track came to life at Iguana Records (Brixton) where Alex worked with producers Adam Connor and Beni Giles (Lianne La Havas).
The release also arrives with a slick music video directed by Lindsay Walker. The visual accompaniment to the track captures its impassioned themes, as the track builds to its climax the video shows a small fire transform into a consuming blaze.
“People will inevitably ask what ‘Boodiyayay’ means, and the real answer is that it’s open to interpretation! I think it has a slight element of witchcraft about it, which for me places it in this very earthy world of catharsis and revenge, almost as if one is cleansing oneself of a past relationship. Hopefully the song takes people on this journey to find closure as it builds to its huge, powerful climax.” Alex adds
