News: North East Artist Alex Opal releases follow-up single ‘Telling You Lies’.

20/11/2019

Following on from the sizeable success of his debut single ‘How It Feels’ funk and soul producer and local artist Alex Opal has released his invigorating new Northern Soul inspired single, ‘Telling You Lies’…

On his new track, Opal has juxtaposed a funky upbeat rhythm with some rather heart-rending lyrics which are all tied together with a hypnotising bassline. Powerful and dynamic vocals from singer Jam Jam complement Opal’s lyricism perfectly. 

When asked about the inspiration behind his newest musical output, Alex Opal explained why he wanted to contrast his debut single. “My first single ‘How It Feels’ was a mid-tempo, funky number, it set the scene and gave everyone a taste of what my music was all about. The new song is an all-out Northern Soul dance number. It has the groove and feel of a classic dance floor filler. My main aim was to write a song that inspired the listener to immediately leap to their feet and dance”. 

Even with only two songs under his belt, Opal has already caught the attention of some of the biggest names in the industry, with funk & soul legend Craig Charles choosing to spin ‘Telling You Lies’ on his BBC Radio 2 show. It’s clear to us that Opal is on a mission to breathe a new lease of life into the classic funk & soul genre. With party season on the horizon, it’ll be sure to fill dancefloors all around the North East and beyond.
