ALEX JAYNE, the London grown-up pop songwriter with an eye for the odd side of life, has revealed her latest track, “Backseat”.
She’s following “90s Dream” , in which, surreally, she imagined attending her own break-up movie, with this sweetly sung, intelligent slice of acoustic pop, observing the city from her taxi home.
She said: “It feels like the city doesn’t stop. It’s always buzzing, moving, flickering around you.
“Jumping in the back of a cab, I suddenly find myself in this intensely quiet space; I’m sinking into the backseat, wandering through the night.
“It’s in those moments where I often become reflective. I’m thinking about someone, wondering where they might be in that moment, realising that maybe I felt more for them than I realised”.
