“Gretel” is already one of the best songs of 2019.
Back from a two-year hiatus, Alex G has returned with new music and the prefix of (Sandy) to his stage name. “Gretel” is effortlessly beautiful, centered around a simple instrumental of guitars, both acoustic and electric, alternating to emphasize a state of hazy waywardness and nostalgia that can never be regained. His vocals and lyrics affirm this, and this track is easily one of the best I have heard this year. I am very, very eager to hear more from this artist as the year goes on.
