Alex G is the stage alias of Alex Giannascoli, a singer, songwriter, and multi- instrumentalist who built his reputation with intimate lo-fi pop that combines strong melodic sensibilities with a ragged, impulsive-sounding performance style. As a teenager, Giannascoli, a Pennsylvania native, wrote and recorded music in his bedroom. He released his home-recorded label debut, DSU, in 2014 via OrchidTapes. The U.K. label Lucky Number mastered and released a couple of Alex Gs earlier DIY albums, Trick and Rules, in the spring of 2015, and he signed with Domino Records for his DSU follow-up, Beach Music , issued in October that year. That album expanded his audience and furthered his reputation, and in 2016 his guitar work appeared on the Frank Ocean albums Endless and Blond . Later that year, he appeared on-stage with Ocean amid headlining tour dates. He retained his idiosyncratic, turbulent style even as he began working with collaborators, expanding his sound, and working in studios. Beach Music and its 2017 follow-up Rocket landed on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, and 2019’s House of Sugar saw him debut on Billboard’s Emerging Artists, Top Alternative Albums, and Independent Albums charts.
Alex G released his ninth studio album God Save the Animals in 2022 to praise from critics across the board, who hailed it as “a tour de force” (Rolling Stone) and “his most thrilling and playful record yet” (Vanity Fair). Alex followed the album’s release with an entirely sold out headlining tour across North America; gave high profile national TV performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and CBS Saturday Morning; and made his debut on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. God Save the Animals was named one of the best records of 2022 by Pitchfork, NPR, The Fader, Stereogum, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Consequence, Uproxx, The Ringer, and the New York Times, who called him “one of indie rock’s most mysterious, and best, songwriters.”
