Alex The Astronaut has always had a supernatural knack for capturing human experience in song. On last year’s album, ‘The Theory Of Absolutely Nothing’, she explores friendship, love, loss, pain and change, weaving a constellation of stories about the personal reckonings that come with growing up. Alex’s breakout track ‘Already Home’ arrived in 2016 and features the now-iconic line ‘And there’s billionaires for presidents / And parking fines at hospitals’. In 2017, she returned with ‘Not Worth Hiding’, an open letter to her 16 year old self that details the journey to her own sexuality. The track arrived as Australia was debating marriage equality and became the unofficial anthem of the Vote Yes movement. The mammoth single then went on to receive support from Elton John on his Beats 1 radio show and score #23 in triple j’s Hottest 100.
