Alex's debut blew everyone away but I'm more so impressed by the strength of this follow up. Lots of hype around Alex right now but she's certainly got the substance to match.

The last few months have been a whirlwind for you and you get that frenetic energy in this song. It's so bloody earnest, humble and endearing, with astute storytelling that puts you there in the moment. I think we all feel like proud mums right now. Go touch the stars girl.

A hustling, bustling gem that pairs those traditional strummy songwriter instincts with some classy, inventive flourishes. With two for two on the belt, expecting to see this Astronaut's career skyrocket soon enough.

You always hear that NYC is this crazy, fast-paced city where dreams comes true. And you can hear all of that plus more in Rockstar City! It's got this contagious euphoric drive to it and it's hard not to feel giddy when listening.

Every time this comes on the radio I have to stop and listen. It's such a clever pop song which navigates smart lyrics through beautiful layers of instrumentation. Top it off with a hint of nostalgia and you've got a total winner.

Only the best storytellers can take the creep out of people watching and you have done such a wonderful job of taking us on this bus journey with you. Bravo.

I'm dealing out a full score for this one. "And there's billionaires for president, and parking fines at hospitals". What a line. The world is often cruelly unjust, but songs like this make it a better place.

I don't think I've ever related to a song quite as much as I have right now listening to this song. I'm completely floored.

Ever come across one of those songs where you go "holey moley, who IS this! This is incredible!" That's what I feel about Already Home when I first stumbled across it on the radio late last year. Everything comes together to form a song that's just so pleasing to the ear. The standout for me is the wonderfully storytelling in the lyrics, and the little violins are just the icing on the cake. Very excited to see her for the first time when she tours with Dustin Tebbutt & Lisa Mitchell

I couldn't love this more if I tried! Alex spins words in a way that's so captivating you feel like you're with her every step of the way. The way Rockstar City is arranged, with it's subtle build ups, mirrors the story. It's so fulflling to hear her finally break through and let go - in both the story and song.

I know a song is amazing when it immediately makes imagine its music video in my head. Already Home did that for me. Easily one of the best tracks this side of 2016.
