alextbh Premieres New Song “Walls” on SoundCloud
- Malaysian singer-songwriter Alex Bong, aka alextbh has delivered a new song “Walls” via SoundCloud.
The song was premiered exclusively on i-D and follows up previous song "still mine", which was released last month.
The track is accompanied by lyric video, which was directed by Daniel Adams. It was written by Alex Bong and produced by Maths Time Joy.
The song is R&B ballad featuring his soft and smooth vocals.
Alex Bong told i-D about the song:
“'walls,' is a continuation of my previous single “still mine.” I actually have very vivid imagery of the exact moment I started writing that song. I was kneeling in front of my coffee table. I wasn’t even sitting on my sofa. I was on the floor — sobbing, writing it. I’m very proud of this song because I didn’t try to structure or rhyme it, as opposed to other songs. My mind works in a really pop structured way. But that song, I just spoke my mind... That was the day I was denied my US tourist visa. I just told myself, ‘Okay you know what? Fuck this place. I’m going to write a song about you.’ But I also wanted to write about this guy that’s been on my mind for so long, so I’ll use both of those visuals together.”
Alex Bong is known as Malaysia’s first gay icon. He started writing when he was 13 with GarageBand. He recent uses Ableton and posted the songs to SoundCloud.
He released a debut EP "Alive" in 2016.
