Saving Alexis is a pop-rock quartet fueled up with teenage energy and fresh sounds. Composed of four locals – three of them Gozitan – the band is based in Marsa, Malta.
In May of 2010, the first single “Lipstick Lies” was recorded with the help of producers Kenny D’Ugo and Dave Calleja and released to the airwaves. After one week of airplay on 89.7 Bay Radio, the song debuted at 6th place in the Bay Radio Malta’s Top 10 Chart. It eventually moved up to 1st place where it stayed for four consecutive weeks. The song’s success led to further airplay on other radio stations such as XFM 100.2, Radio 101 and Galaxy Radio, and to the band’s nomination for the Best Newcomers Award at the 2010 Bay Music Awards.
In late 2010, new lead guitarist Chris “Red” was introduced to Saving Alexis to coincide with the recording of the second single. “Ocean Deep” was officially released in January of 2011 and eventually reached 1st place in Bay Radio’s Malta’s Top 10 Chart, marking two consecutive number one singles for the band. In all, the single spent 11 weeks in the chart.
In the summer of 2011, the band’s third single, “High on July” was released, accompanied by a music video filmed and produced by Nick Morales and No Sweat Productions. Featuring ska guitars and rap verses, the song slowly climbed to the number one spot in Bay Radio’s Malta’s Top 10 Chart, hence confirming the third consecutive number one single.
Musical influences vary a lot for Saving Alexis, from classical jazz to more modern rock n’ roll. Apart from music, other influences include everything from the street lights to the movie life, Japan, speed, love n’ hate.
