Brighton-born, London-based musician Alexander Teller, has returned just in time to close out 2016 with a sublime new single, ‘It’s All Happening in Berlin’.
A multi-instrumentalist, the singer-songwriter writes, records and produces his music from his South London home; a formula that seems to be working a treat.Teller’s previous work came in for praise here before but his latest single might be his best and most affecting work to date. A beautiful song – musically and lyrically – it is powerful and emotive, with a melancholic and lamentable feel. It is as though we are privy to the the last days of a declining world, a world falling apart at the seams. Led by piano and acoustic strum, and back by some swish, swooning orchestral sweeps coalesce while Teller’s powerful, deep, dark brogue endeavours to raise his lyrics to pride of place – emblematic of the song’s stirring emotion and rousing defiance. Powerful and compelling, this is Teller’s finest hour thus far.
