about

On ‘Alix’, Barely Autumn ironically pay tribute to the sort of romantic intrigues that were doomed to fail before they even started.

‘Alix’ is a song about finding the balance between careless self-indulgence on the one hand, and unconditional devotion on the other. It’s a celebration of the provokingly confusing rollercoaster-like type of relationship that current day millennials seem to have mastered like no other.

Barely Autumn sound more light-hearted and tongue in cheek than ever. The band put their former acoustic guitar-based melancholy behind them, bringing forward a pulsating nineties indie rock sound that’s both fresh and dynamic. ‘Alix’ radiates a Pavement-like spontaneity while simultaneously sounding as timeless as an early Beck recording.

lyrics

I wish she would come back
I’m sure as hell looking for a sign

Why did I keep going in a lie?
I’ve wasted all this so called precious time

I wish she would come back
I’m sure as hell waiting for a sign

Why did I keep going in a lie?
I’ve wasted all this so called precious time

I wish she would come back
I sure as hell ‘ve been waiting for a while

Why did I keep going in a lie?
I’ve wasted all this so called precious time

about

Barely Autumn Brussels, Belgium

The band founded by songwriter Nico Kennes, reinvent themselves on their second album.

It radicalizes the band’s very nature: the creation of straightforward songs about everyday life topics, while simultaneously transcending the ordinary.

It is an unpretentious crusade by – and for – confused millennials, in search of their place in this world: a tongue-in-cheek tribute to meaninglessness.
