Video: ALX – “Crash” (Acoustic)
The Naples Native Shows Off His Vocals As He Reveals an Acoustic Version of a Highlight From The Fantasy EP
“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
Florida native ALX specializes in well-crafted songs that blend classic pop hooks with a modern lyrical sensibility. Giving the stripped-down treatment to one of his most popular songs, ALX shares a new video for “Crash” (Acoustic). With over 800k combined plays on YouTube and Spotify, “Crash” combines chugging 90s guitar with punchy percussion, as ALX dives headfirst into a wild romantic encounter: “Crash and rollin lost all control on the way/flashing, floating, glass lights rolling down your face.” Directed by Jochi Sacha, the new acoustic video for “Crash” finds ALX and his guitarist Ben Chandler providing immaculate vibes for a carefree party, as the attendees play flip cup and hop into the pool. The new video for “Crash” follows an acoustic clip for “Love On Top“ (945k Spotify streams), the lead single from ALX’s debut The Fantasy EP.
Borrowing the taffy-like melodies and crunchy guitars of pop-punk, the shifting vocal rhythms of hip-hop, and the smoothness of R&B, ALX’s songs tell breezy relationship stories with a wry sense of humor. Along with “Crash” the EP boasts highlights like “Misses, FL,” which earned over 320k views on its dreamy music vide. With over 2 million total streams, The Fantasy EP is currently available for stream and purchase via Alamo Records.
A native of Naples, FL, ALX is an integral part of a thriving pop scene in his city, along with ripmattblack, Capi, and ALX’s brother Dominic Fike. Stay tuned for much more from ALX, including a new EP, in the coming weeks and months.

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 released his debut EP The Fantasy in May 2020 via Alamo Records.
