A strong love for classic 60s/70s guitar pop (Beach Boys, Beatles) as well as soft spots for Prince and Hall & Oates display his self proclaimed ‘fascination with pop music’. While his influences certainly shape his work, it is his natural ear for melody and movement which make Calder’s work both fluid and engaging.
His knack and ambition both in his song writing and production provide a solid foundation for Calder’s music to drift in an out of psychy realms. There are no over drenched chorus or walls of sound, instead leaving space for melody and texture to be neatly co-existent. Alex has found the sweet spot between slacker-pop jangle and snug rhymtic production to create reassurance his songs are going somewhere. Intimate handclaps and shakers make it easy for one to visualize the living from which it came as Calder’s questions what to do with his time both literally and existentially.
