“A song that covers mental health and the fear of growing up. Creating a nostalgia that was never even there.”

The words from Charlotte-based act Alex PGSV sum up their latest single perfectly – “northern poetry” is dark and moody in a hauntingly familiar way. A hypnotic vocal cadence starts the song off with a memorable melody – a great way to get your ear hooked. It’s followed by emo-esque vocals dripping with anxiety. What’s most notable here is how the mostly electronic backbone somehow feels organic, adding to the deeply rooted tones of nostalgia..
