This is me, in the studio in Berlin, back when we recorded songs for my debut album.
It's a while back, cause I recorded that album with my boyfriend - and then we broke up.
Listening back to my own songs, I heard how I had seen it coming; my lyrics full of impending goodbyes.
I say “goodbyes” because there were two moments of leaving.
The first goodbye was when after a few years together, he moved back to Berlin, and left me behind in Holland. I had written songs about him possibly moving away, long before it happened, to brace myself for that painful farewell.
Those are the songs I put together on a first EP off the album: “For The Left Behind”
The second goodbye came much later, after we had struggled long distance and recorded my album together. I’ll tell you more about that period later in the year.
The move he finally did make - going to Berlin, is the route I’m on myself these days. I’m in town to play concerts, to play and sing those songs in the city where we recorded most of them.
Happy to finally release “For The Left Behind” this Friday #newmusicfriday#newep#newmusic#songs#farewell#goodbye#lovesongs#singersongwriter#femalemusicians#womencomposers#indie#folk#americana#fortheleftbehind#story#backstory#tour#berlin#throwback#thegiant#lewin#lewinsongs
YOU’VE TAKEN ALL THE BLAME FROM ME ‘Blame’ is a song by my band Sub Machine, and it’s going to be released on Spotify/ Apple Music/ etc on Friday 27 September.
It’s about that feeling of release from guilt, shame, anxiety … all the stuff that I (and I think many others) carry around so much of the time.
For the verses I dredged up all the embarrassing and shameful stuff about myself I could think of … which is weird as I’m usually such a private person, but there you go, the song demanded it.
Musically, this is our #electronica/ #indietronica side. Big synths, but guitars too; poppy beats with a hint of half time dub. I guess in a way it’s a bit of a weird mix of a song, but I think it works anyway.
Two days until ‘Burgundy’!! Follow ‘Alex Whorms’ on Spotify to have the new EP delivered straight to you on Friday! 😀 Link in bio.
PS - who can guess which song I was singing in this pic at Grant Avenue Studio? 🤪

Tag Yebba and Beyoncé
Well, this started off as “My Mind” by Yebba but ended up being “My Mind” by Yebba, Jalen, and Beyoncé. Y’all know me, I couldn’t resist the temptation of a Beyoncé tribute.
Let’s play this game again!
Who can guess all of the Beyoncé songs I included???? There’s at least 4:
