Alex Gardner – Xenomania Discovery

I guess it would be easy to dismiss Alex Gardner as yet another PYT (Pretty Young Thing). Well, as a former model, he is certainly pretty and at 18, he is young too. I wouldn’t call him a thing though!

But looks can be deceiving so don’t dismiss him out of hand. Alex is a talented singer with quite a soulful quality that shines through on his songs. He has been working with hitmakers Xenomania (who produced the wonder “Yes” album from the Pet Shop Boys among many other hits) and his debut single, “I’m Not Mad”, has just been released in the UK.

Alex has an official site and a MySpace page (with more songs to listen to) at the following links:

Here is the clip for “I’m Not Mad”. I’m sure you’ll find it as compelling as I did. The song is a real grower. I can’t get it out of my head.

    I think the problem is with half these people is that we’re excited about them because of Xenomania, not the other way around. Girls Aloud wouldn’t be anywhere near as good if it wasn’t for the people at Xenomania

      Xenomania aren’t really that big here in Australia and, to be honest, the mere mention of their name isn’t enough to hook me in. I don’t particularly like Girls Aloud (apart from a couple of songs) but I loved their production work with the Pet Shop Boys.

      I happen to love Alex’s song because I think it’s very good and I love his voice. I think that Xenomania have obviously worked well with him.
