ALEXDRAKE. Drops New Single ‘Peace Of Mind’ feat. AJ PERDOMO
Featuring AJ Perdomo of The Dangerous Summer, Peace Of Mind from alexdrake. is a thrilling slice of pop-punk goodness.
New Jersey native and current LA resident alexdrake. continues to build up the hype around his musical talents as he offers up his sophomore single, Peace Of Mind. Joining forces with his friend and long-time inspiration AJ Perdomo (The Dangerous Summer), Alex delivers an empowering and uplifting message on this new track. Inspired by the events of Los Angeles Protesting, Peace Of Mind acts as a call to arms, mirroring the current social unrest but at the same time digging much deeper, translating the narrative to a more personal level. Encouraging the listeners to never give up on their dreams and passions, Alex effortlessly brings forth the urgency of pop-punk and the grittiness of alt-rock and mixes it with melodic indie-pop sensibilities to create a sound that’s distinctively his own.
Speaking on the new single, alexdrake. shares:
This song was first written and recorded while I was at my studio, my computer screen was in front of a window at my old apartment and I was writing this song and I looked outside and there were hundreds of protestors walking down my alleyway in Los Angeles Protesting. I got up and joined for the time that I could but that directly exemplifies where society was at the time of this songs conception (and still is) which gave me the thought process and drive to create the concept.
The song really embarks on the turmoil we deal with everyday with everyday occurrences. Dealing with your boss, dealing with current societal stressors, dealing with any kind of aversion to what you love and what you want to do but still having ‘Peace of Mind’ to do you and follow yours dreams, passions, and internal monologue regardless of what is being spewed at you. There is some kind of political background within it as well – meaning the hardships and terrible things we are seeing happening today are absolute atrocities to humanity and at the end of the day, we as individuals need to be able to combat what must be combatted while still loving ourselves and self-preserving when/where we can.
