The record explores the range of sounds that Rex Orange County brainchild Alex O'Connor was drawn to upon his creative adventure to Amsterdam - discussed on the troubled track "The Shade" - where he once again collaborates with Benny Sings, whom you may remember from his greatly successful feature on "Loving Is Easy". Despite this modern fusion of jazz, pop and hip-hop, the foundations of this LP come to rely on a delightfully orchestral backbone. Lead single "Keep It Up" is a glistening message of encouragement providing an excellent intro to Who Cares? and it's invigorating themes.
Rising to prominence in 2017, Alex O'Connor, professionally known as Rex Orange County, has continued his stratospheric rise to world domination with his bright blend of hip-hop, jazz, and bedroom pop. The English singer-songwriter, primarily known for his unique sound of sweeping alternative pop songs that weave together the mundane reality of life and the epic fantasy that is teenage love, has finally released his fourth album 'Who Cares?' after two years of silence. Following from his raw and intelligently written third album 'Pony' in 2019, O'Connor has honed in on doing what he does best by cultivating catchy beats, lovely melodies and heartfelt meanings to create another beautifully crafted sonic journal.
