Montreal’s Alexiane’s new EP Bad Sounds promises to be anything but

Alexiane has had more than 41 million streams across digital platforms of her music, including her chart-rising breakthrough hit “A Million on My Soul.” The Canadian alt-pop singer/songwriter and producer has ushered a new six-track EP to the table, Bad Sounds (available now).

“We all have different demons to face,” Alexiane says of her music. “Music is the best way I know to look those demons in the eye. For me, advancing is writing, and fighting is creating.”

Born in Montmagny, Quebec to a Senegalese father and Canadian mother, Alexiane is no stranger to shuttling between Montreal and Senegal, in West Africa, soaking up the Afro-Latin, French, and North American soundscape along the way. With her style self-described as “dark, cinematic pop with African undertones” and her alumni stacking as UCLA’s Music Business & Music Production, Bad Sounds serves as a good showcase for the multi-faceted, emotively astute artist’s breadth of talent.

“Although I have always had a shy and reserved temperament, all the challenges of life pushed me at a very early age to sing and write lyrics and melodies from a personal perspective. It helped me overcome life’s challenges.”

Packed with unflinching honesty and a knack for finding hope in the darkest of places, Bad Sounds serves as an aperitif of sorts, set to both tease and ease earnest ears as an introduction ahead of her 2021 album, Into the Sun; the forthcoming LP will feature all six songs from Bad Sounds. Alexiane’s Bad Sounds is available now.
