Track: The Saxophones – Desert Flower

Sarah Eiseman

Returning after three years away, the husband and wife duo of Alexi Erenkov and Alison Alderdice who go by the name The Saxophones, have announced their third album ‘To Be A Cloud’, due the 2nd of June. They have shared the video for the first single to be taken from it, ‘Desert Flower, directed by Rainbow Tunnel.

“Alison wants me to try therapy,” says Alexi. “She’s a therapist herself, but I’ve never been to one. The idea of going makes me very uncomfortable. I don’t like being vulnerable in front of strangers. So, instead of confronting my discomfort, I look for an easier path. It’s never easier and it’s always unsatisfying or destructive. “Desert Flower” is about avoidance and fear impeding personal growth and the deepening of relationships.

Dominated by Erenkov’s dark baritone the sweeping musical backing drives the track along with sweeping choruses and haunting verses. It’s smooth jazz filled pop that comforts and differs from what is out there. It’s good to have these two back making music.
