Drawing inspiration from artists such as Lady Gaga and Karen Carpenter, Lexie pulls threads from this rich array of influences to create a tapestry of her own.

Returning with the richly romantic “Fire”, Lexie has always shared her journey intimately with fans across social media platforms. “Fire” is further indication of this candid approach to songwriting, as Lexie details a romantic encounter in which her partner is still plagued by the ghosts of previous lovers. 

“I kinda feel like you’ll be meeting me for the first time when you hear ‘Fire’, it’s the first release that really shows my vulnerability and the emotion in my voice”, Lexie explains. “I’m a sucker for sad acoustic music and country, and I feel like those influences definitely crept in with this one.”

“I can’t lie, I really love this song – it reminds me of the kind of song you’d hear at the end of a high school Netflix show. You know when you meet someone and really like them, but it feels like no matter what you do, you’ll never fill the shoes of the person that was there before. Sometimes people have ‘the one that got away’ so it feels like you’ll always be compared to that person. And after a while it’s just tiring and unfulfilling. It’s quite an emotional song actually, but at the same time empowering because I’m also making a declaration of my worth.”

Fire” is out now. Tune in below.
