Alex Siegel – “Beauty Fades”


The blissfully melodic “Beauty Fades” is another success from Alex Siegel. The California-based artist has impressed in the past with tracks like “Headspin” and “Daydreaming Pilot.” “Beauty Fades” continues a hooky, mellow pop aesthetic. The track’s “superficial beauty fades,” hook succeeds with lovely guitar quaintness and delicate synths, as Siegel’s vocals again show an irresistible pull. Twangy guitars approaching the two-minute mark add notably to the breezy soundscape. Siegel continues to showcase an addictive, hooky vein of mellow pop that’s hard to resist.

“Beauty Fades” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
