Hi again (I know you’re all so lucky to have two posts from me in one day!). After my earlier post to tell who was awarded 3rd place I’m back to tell you that 2nd place went to… Rex Orange County!!! To listen to Best Friend, click below…
19 year-old Alex O’Connor began his music journey by learning to play drums, then he honed and advanced his skills by learning keys, guitar and singing. He spend time studying at the BRIT School in London.
In 2015, after developing the moniker Rex Orange County, he self-released bcos u will never b free. In 2016 he followed this single up with the release of EP Apricot Princess. Soon word of distinctive style spread and in 2017 he was given two guest slots on Tyler, the Creator‘s album as well performing live with Skepta and Frank Ocean.
Let me know your thoughts on Rex Orange County and any of the other nominees in the comments section below.
