“Hanging On A Line” Begonia

Begonia, AKA: Alexa Dirks, recently announced her debut full-length, Fear, will drop on September 13th, via Rex Baby Records (Sony Music Canada). Begonia wrote and co-produced the record with a familiar team of Matt Schellenberg (Royal Canoe) and Matt Peters (Royal Canoe) along with Marcus Paquin (The National, Arcade Fire, Local Natives). Ahead of the release, Begonia has shared the album-track “Hanging On A Line,” the song is now available via Rex Baby Records/Sony, and most streaming services. Begonia, plays her next show on June 27th in Montreal, at the Montreal Jazz Festival.

With album cuts, “The Light”, “Beats”, and “Living At The Ceiling” already released, Begonia is now sharing another new track from the LP. “Hanging On A Line” is a song about “seriously falling in love in the club,” says Dirks. “Sometimes anything seems possible when you’re slightly intoxicated and there’s a sub bass vibrating through your body. Amidst all this there are two extra underlying messages ; try to be a good person and remember to stay hydrated.”
