If you’re a fan of Billie Eilish and Julia Michaels then you’re gonna want to dive into Australia’s very own L E X who’s sound fuses the two together with a little dash of her own Serbian heritage to give it a unique flavour. Her debut single C’EST LA VIE is a brooding number with enigmatic synths mixing with the haunting tone of her vocal to create a piece shrouded in darkness, but she does offer a fleck of light through her subtle optimism she brings in to the piece. It’s a polished pop track with a strong message behind it that packs an almighty punch that a veteran hit maker would be jealous of.
With lyrics detailing her vulnerability as well as the inner emotional turmoil that comes with finding your place in the world it’s hard not to relate to this piece no matter what age you are. Include the pulsating production that propels the track forward into exciting new territories and you’ve got an artist who’s got potential to do something explosive in Australia.
