Rock out with the intriguing “Last Dance” by Sweden’s Simon Alexander @SimonAlexmusic

SIMON ALEXANDER, “Last Dance”

I introduced you to Swedish singer/songwriter Simon Alexander earlier this year with the taut “Won’t Be Found”.  His latest single “Last Dance” is an immediate ear-grabbing alt.rock tune with a memorable chorus that arrives uncharacteristically at the 30 second mark.  From there in, you’re already swept into the intrigue of the song and how the couple in the song came to their last dance.  The guitar work is solid and a well-balanced production keeps the song moving fluidly.  Simon has both power and range in his voice, which could also be spotlighted well in an acoustic rendition of this song.  As is though, “Last Dance” is a fresh-sounding radio-ready rocker that wraps up handily just before the three minute mark.
