PLEXXAGLASS is genre enigmatic. Lead by singer-songwriter Alexxa Joan Rae, her music sounds like battle cries.
The project's debut singles 'Lament en Route' and 'Liar' are brutally honest accounts of hatred and battles with mental illness. Fearlessly, ‘Resist’ takes on the Trump Administration with unapologetic lyrics and visuals from Actuality Films.
Joan Rae came equipped with her director’s hat for the final release of 2018. ‘Ana Thema’ is the story of a ghost who came to Alexxa in her dreams, asking her to tell her harrowing story of sexual abuse. Told with breathtaking choreography (Leila Zandy) in the age of #metoo— it is a story that is all too familiar.
‘Dead-Eyed Monsters’ is an anthemic ballad expressing a distain for the regular 9-5 routine. Its poignant visual, again directed by Alexxa, warns of inevitably turning into the enemy. A nerd to the end-- it’s clear to anyone familiar, that the monster make-up was derived from a character of the ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ universe.
PLEXXAGLASS owes most of its particular brand of weird to producer Kevin Billingslea (The Halo Studio, Maine). His collaboration with Rae has been pivotal to establishing a one-of-a-kind sound, leaving most unable to place it in a neat box. She refuses to slow down, refuses to stay quiet, and is more determined than ever to be heard.
