Alex Tronic releases a new single, ‘Wax’, on his own Alex Tronic imprint.
The alias of Edinburgh-based producer Paul Croan, is joined on the new track by singer and multi-instrumentalist Dominika Czerniga.
Taken from forthcoming album ‘Bounced’ – due out later in 2021 and being recorded with funding from Creative Scotland – the single was recorded at Croan’s studio in Leith, Edinburgh, which has been described by Music Tech Magazine as “a vintage synth treasure trove.”
The track – which also features saxophone from Anna Hetherington and guitar from The Cathode RaRay’s Jeremy Thoms – was then mastered in Berlin by award-winning engineer Conor Dalton (Daft Punk,Carl Cox, John Digweed).
Czerniga said of the single: “Wax is a song dipped in retro nostalgia. Dreamy strings paired with lush sax alongside Alex Tronic`s beautifully chilled out beat. This creates a perfect landscape for softly sang lyrics of romantic longing. Bright yet bittersweet just like young love.”
The guest vocalist also directed the single’s video, filmed by Ben Glasgow:
“I had pictured the video for ‘Wax’ as a love letter from Edinburgh,” she says,”drenched in vibrant colours, following the delightful misadventures of a girl and her ‘real’ dog.
“Absurd, dream-like ASMR for your eyes, leaves you wondering if you can be part of her world, and if you are lucky, maybe smash some watermelon together.”
