Painter, DJ & musician Alexandra Feusi, a Swiss-Polish artist based in Vienna makes her debut on Iptamenos Discos with her debut single “Hello Sunday”.
The second release in the recently launched single series for Iptamenos Discos, the track falls somewhere between disco, indie dance, house, and electronica and features melancholic vocals which contrast with an upbeat and joyful melody and a bouncy and energetic bassline, creating an atmosphere that blurs the line between happy and sad and leaves the emotional meaning and intention of the song up to the interpretation of the listener.
The song was written in Vienna in April 2020 and was born out of heartbreak and loneliness. Feeling a deep sense of isolation due to the borders of her home country Switzerland being closed and her flatmates having left to be with their families, Alexandra felt trapped within the situation with no means of escape, how a bug must feel when they have flown into something they cannot flee from.
“Hello Sunday” was created to process this peculiar predicament she found herself in and found relief after subsequently reflecting on this feeling and finding humour in the fact that in a moment of despair she somehow found herself strongly resonating with a bug. She came to the realisation that it is easy to forget that no one is special or alone in these feelings, even if you feel as if you are “the only bug in a world of bugs”.
Alexandra is currently studying at the Kyoto University of Art and Design, and the cover artwork incorporates her paintings. Alexandra talks about how both her music and art have the same origin, both are art and are equally important, serving as inspiration and energy for each other.
“Hello Sunday” will release via Iptamenos Discos on digital and streaming platforms on the 17th of October 2023 with the original mix and an instrumental version.
