Alex the Astronaut was a student when she released her debut EP To Whom it May Concern in early 2017. Living in New York on a soccer scholarship, she spent her days studying science and writing songs in her dorm. Now things are different.
Alex graduated and moved home to Sydney. “90% of the people I met over there I won’t see again,” she says of her three years spent living in New York. “I said goodbye to a whole portion of my life. Which is probably why I spent most of my new songs writing about that.”
