LA-based singer, songwriter, and piano man Alex Izenberg shares the second taste from his forthcoming album Harlequin, in the form of a live video for ‘Grace’.
Directed by Giraffe Studios, and shot in a gorgeous Californian church, the video is an intimate introduction to Izenberg – a man, sitting at a piano, singing us a song about longing and heartbreak.
Stream the studio version of “Grace” here.
Harlequin will be out November 18th on Weird World / Domino, and to celebrate, Alex will be performing at an album release show at Non Plus Ultra in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Also joining Alex on the night will be Midnight Sister, plus yet-to-be-announced special guests. Info HERE.
Some nice words on ‘To Move On’:
“To Move On” sounds like it might’ve come straight from the 1970s. If only moving on always sounded this joyous.” – FADER
“A jaunty, falsetto-tinted track that sounds as though it has been lifted from three generations at once.” – NOISEY
“It’s a soft wreck that feels like gold spangles settled in ink and a vaudeville smile.” – The Line Of Best Fit

Harlequin is a colourful, imp-like fantasy of a record, full of concealed charm and mischief – the personalities of its strings, the horns and the echoes of the myriad rooms in which it was recorded all coming alive as supporting characters in its winding plot. Yet for all this complexity it is also still a deeply human and relatable record at its core. Very much a hometown record, it takes its cues from the way in which fiction and reality are at constant play in everyday life in a city unlike no other; setting simple, universal tales of love, loss, grief and confusion against the heat, haze, magic and madness of the Los Angeles of Izenberg’s vivid imagination.
