Alex O’Connor, who goes by Rex Orange County, is another 18-year-old singer/songwriter that has just released his newest single, “Best Friend.” Having discovered Rex back in 2016 with his popular track “Uno,” and was a Zane Lowe World Record, “Best Friend” is truly a solid follow up. An upbeat song referencing a more than likely rocky relationship, Rex pushes thesound of this track with upbeat horns, enticing beach-y guitar strings and the oh-so favorable drum kit, all while providing somewhat sarcastic and witty lyrics. The coolest part about this kid is that he recorded his first ever album right in his bedroom.
The artist has received accolades from others in the industry such as Tyler the Creator and even collaboration opportunities with BADBADNOTGOOD. Some awesomely cool shit. Check out the full track below:
