Rising Finland-based artist Lxandra has just released her newest track, entitled “Careful What I Dream Of”. Lxandra has been involved in music from a young age, thanks in large part to her own father who is a producer and bassist who has worked with a number of acclaimed Finnish acts. Lxandra is planning on releasing her own debut album later this year on Island Records.

Dark and emotional strings open the track, and Lxandra’s distinctive voice quickly sets the scene. She proceeds to carry listeners across her dark piano and electro-tinged sound with an impressive balance of strength and delicacy, airily balancing on some lyrics while attacking others with an admirable fierceness. The singer has an air of power and independence about her, even as she sings about checking herself on not getting caught up on another person.
