Exclusive Album Premiere: Alex Watts - Sing, Strum & Strut (2014 EP)

Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Alex Watts has given the world his first solo release - the four-track EP Sing, Strum & Strut - showcasing his penchant for writing poignant, acoustic-driven rock. It's a fairly descriptive title, seeing as Watts glides through these four well-written numbers with confidence and charm, offering us a much quieter and mellow ambiance when compared to the expansive sound he often produces with his seven-piece band The Foreign Tongue.

Sing, Strum & Strut follows the success of Alex Watts & the Foreign Tongue's recent singles "This Haunting" (co-written by Mick Thomas) and "Warned", which led to the band becoming festival favourites, appearing at BigSound, The Queenscliff Music Festival and the St. Kilda Festival in both 2013 and 2014.

We here at the AU review are proud to bring you the exclusive online stream of the EP:

Sing, Strum & Strut is officially released on May 27 on 12" vinyl and digital download; it can be preordered at
