Alex Krawczyk Invites Listeners to Open Their Hearts with ‘Turning’

Toronto-based Alex Krawczyk has well and truly hit the ground running. After using music as a coping mechanism to process the loss of her parents, her debut album ‘Le Olam’ has now acquired an impressive 150k streams. 

Krawczyk openly discusses feelings of grief, confusion and fear, but the latest single from the indie-folk musician is quite the opposite: a force of pure positivity and gratitude. ‘Turning’, in its all-encompassing joyous energy and genuine optimism, is a breath of fresh air. Without a hint of irony or sarcasm, it's helping to elevate mainstream music and fill a much-needed gap. 

Amidst a well-blended instrumental, the mix is clear and neat; the acoustic drums provide an infectious uptempo groove, whilst the electric guitars exude bursts of energy throughout.

Krawczyk’s vocals effortlessly glide along, providing a rich, crisp captivation that are simply irresistible. Her dulcet tones evoke the same clarity and lushness as the likes of Self Esteem and Phoebe Bridgers, both of whom have been making huge waves in the industry recently - by this measure, it wouldn’t be surprising if Krawczyk followed in their successful footsteps. 

Ultimately, ‘Turning’ is about not just looking through the world with a perspective of gratitude, but actively choosing to do so. The repeated lyrical hook, “we’ve got a beautiful world when we stop and look around” is a bold affirmation against times that are challenging, and reminds listeners to always try and look beyond their immediate present in times of hardship.

‘Turning’ finds itself amongst Krawczyk’s aforementioned debut album, ‘Le Olam’ released in February of this year. For such a strong early start in her career, Krawczyk is well on her way to establishing herself as a key artist in the indie-folk scene.
