Budding South FL Talent ALX Announces The Fantasy, His Debut EP, Out 5/27 via Alamo Records
The Smooth-Voiced Singer Retreats to a Remote Cabin in the Video for the New Single “Love On Top”
“Bursting with personality, the laid-back, fun effort proves that talent runs strong in the Fike genes, and we can’t wait for more from the promising young star.” – HillyDilly
“ALX’s sound is an engrossing fusion between pop and hip-hop, creating a sound and vibe all his own.” – Ones To Watch
With a resonant voice and a witty songwriting sensibility, ALX is the latest genre-fluid Southwest Florida artist to demand attention. Preparing a vibrant 5-track effort, ALX announces The Fantasy, his debut EP. Splitting the difference between crunchy pop-punk, radio-friendly rap, and silky R&B, ALX’s songs tell breezy relationship stories with a wry sense of humor. Featuring the summer-ready recent single “Misses, FL,” which earned over 150k views on its dreamy music video, The Fantasy EP arrives on May 27th via Alamo Records.
To accompany the announcement of the EP, ALX shares “Love On Top,” his new video single, premiered by Ones To Watch. Riding a rocksteady, backbeat-accented beat with spritely piano and spindly guitars, “Love On Top” is a joyful account of the early days of a relationship. Singing the praises of spending quality time with the person he loves, ALX nimbly navigates the instrumental with his gravelly voice and expert sense of conversational rhythm. In the video, directed by Carrington, ALX and his girlfriend spend a sun-drenched afternoon in a rustic cabin, with nobody around to interrupt their romance.
A native of Naples, FL, ALX is an integral part of a thriving pop scene in his city, along with ripmattblack, Ben Chandler, Capi, and ALX’s brother Dominic Fike. Stay tuned for The Fantasy, the first salvo in the young artist’s promising career.

ALX is a singer/songwriter hailing from Naples, Florida, who is signed to Alamo Records. In the beachside town of Naples, ALX cut his teeth making music with his older brother, Dominic Fike, and other friends including Ben Chandler, ripmattblack, and Capi.
The younger Fike’s genre-blending, in-your-face pop sounds are an amalgamation of his love of artists such as Justin Timberlake and Mariah Carey, and a conscious ear for the cutting edge alternative rock and hip hop music being made by some of his long-time collaborators. With charm to burn and a one-of-one sense of humor, Alx captivates audiences with his hilarious social media presence and eye-popping tattoos, as a cherry-on-top of his incredible musical abilities.
ALX is preparing to release an EP in the upcoming month, The Fantasy, fresh off the release of his first single and video, “Misses FL,” produced by Capi, who produced “3 Nights” for Alx’s older counterpart, Dominic.
