Alex Orange Drink solo project of Alex Zarou Levine. Levine is the Founding member of D.I.Y. punk outfit The So So Glos. He took its name “orange drink” as a nod to the medication he depends on to treat a rare metabolic disease, Homocystinuria. Alex Orange Drink’s releases his next record, Everything Is Broken, Maybe That’s O.K on September 17, 2021. A head of the album’s release, he has shared the single “How High.”
There is something eerily medical about this collection of songs – two contrasting songs about grappling with a life-threatening disorder (“Homocystinuria Pt. 1” & “Pt. 2”), three songs about chemical addictions triggered by love (“Oxytocin,” “It’s Only Drugz,” “I L.U.V. I.O.U.”), plenty of references to the intersection of technology and mental health (“Clickbait, Click Me”), and a closing track that implies that a cure may be found in a return to the natural world (“The Sun Is Only Shining”). Lyrically, Alex delves even further into brave personal territory, continuing to explore his own individual crises and life story in a world that’s even more disjointed and damaged than before.
Alex Orange Drink will perform his first show of 2021 at Mercury Lounge in New York City on Thursday, July 8 with Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage. Tickets for the upcoming 21+ appearance are available HERE and proof of vaccination will be required upon entry.
