Alix Page isn’t too chuffed with rubbish exs who ruin Revered And Important bands.
The Really Very Brilliant Indeed newcomer – who recently dropped the brilliant ’25’ – has returned with a brand new tearjerking heartbreaker. Titled ‘Radiohead’, it’s concerned with the way that certain things can recall past experiences at the points you least expect them to.
“[Radiohead] is proof that you can be completely over someone and then have a dream about them and fall right back into feelings you didn’t know you still had.” explains Alix. “Around this time last year I had a dream about me and an ex moving into an apartment and painting it together. We hadn’t spoken in months and I genuinely hadn’t thought about it in a while but it felt SO scarily real. I woke up flustered and heard the whole thing in my head before I even got out of bed; I wrote the first verse and chorus right away.
It wasn’t difficult to write technically but it made me face some hard truths during the process. I didn’t realize I still had some unresolved feelings about it until I was writing the chorus and saying those words out loud. That was kind of my way of coming to terms with the reality of that breakup and accepting the way things went. It’s really just a list of things I wish I could’ve said to that person at that moment.”
So there we go. You can check out ‘Radiohead’ below. But not Radiohead. The song is by Alix Page. It’s just called ‘Radiohead’. Nothing to do with Radiohead themselves. Apart from using their name. Sorted? Lovely.
