Alexander & Mary Ocher – Address Yourself Entirely To Me
Part Evelyn Waugh novel, part silver screen star, Alexander is the velvet voice of morose disco-soul. Combining melodramatic lyrics and insistent melodies with the dry wit of Morrissey and the soundscape of Moroder, Alexander was born for the spotlight.
Written and recorded between New York, Berlin, London and Dublin, Alexander’s songs capture the flavour of a certain international demi-monde; the glamour, the tears, the raucous parties and the untimely deaths.

Compared to everyone from Bowie to Dietrich, Alexander has nevertheless created out a unique sound for himself, at once nostalgic and contemporary.
For this special Orange Ear presentation, Alexander will be joined by his band Ms Evelyn Krampf, Ms Anna Mimouni and Ms Matthias Hofmann.
