Hot Video Alert: Kate Alexa - Infatuation
22-year old singer/songwriter Kate Alexa from Melbourne, Australia is someone you need to know about. Although she's been doing her thing since the age of 16, it's only now that's she's getting some international attention and deservedly so I might add. Her first hit single, "Always There" was used in a TV show called Home & Away, whisking Alexa into the Top 20 on the ARIA Singles chart. Alexa has released one album and one soundtrack album so far in her career. Her most successful single to date, "All I Hear," peaked at #9 on the Singles chart.
Working on her second album, A Little Bit, since 2008, Alexa is finally ready to unleash new music on the world, with "Infatuation" set to be the first single in the UK. Traveling all over the world, Alexa's worked with top music makers in both Los Angeles and in the UK. Her forthcoming sophomore album was produced by Tom Nichols (Kylie Minogue, All Saints, Sugababes) and contains some "undeniable smash hits," all the while maintaining a certain sense of "maturity, spunk and experience." "Infatuation" is an energetic, quirky pop ditty that seems to fit Alexa's fun-loving personality perfect and the video complements the song absolutely perfectly, right down to the animated tattoos coming to live on Alexa's arms. I love everything about this girl!
As if the original version (co-written by Alexa, Tom Nichols, Future Cut) of the song could get any better, then I had to go and learn about the INTENSELY amazing remix package be serviced to clubs in the UK. "Infatuation" has been remixed by WAWA, Almighty and Ultrabeat. Looks like clubland is eating up her brand of club delight, as the song debuted on the commercial pop UK club charts at #28 and moves up to #19 this week. Bloody brilliant! Already serviced to Australian media, the single will be released in Australia through Liberation Music on February 15th.
