Premiering on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show as her Hottest Record, Rex Orange County’s breakout single, ‘Loving Is Easy’, is a dreamy pop gem that has taken the world by storm, recently performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Already two albums in, Rex offers up sweeping alternative lo-fi pop that has been embraced locally by triple j and tastemakers around the world. He has appeared on songs by Tyler, the Creator, performed in Frank Ocean’s live band and shared the stage with Skepta at the 2017 Mercury Prize. His most recent collaboration is a take on Randy Newman’s classic, ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’, featuring Newman himself and retaining the “same warm, easy-going feel” as the original (SPIN). A star on the rise, Rex Orange County is your new favourite artist and won’t be playing small rooms for long.
