Jordan Alexander’s “Take Me Out Tonight” is an impressive pop track that expands from nocturnal verses into a chirpy, emotive chorus full of twinkle-eyed yearning. The Toronto-based pop artist has been rising in recognition in recent memory, being selected as “the next gay pop star” by AfterEllen, in addition to touring with Bif Naked. The “take me out tonight” hook, complemented by twinkling keys and a very sound vocal delivery, is enjoyable and pleasant. While not touting extreme structural variety or stylistic innovation, Alexander delivers an accessible and easy-listening vein of pop that values both atmosphere and easily accessible hooks.
The track comes off her debut album The Lonely Hearts Club.
