The debut album “Ribcage Versus Unguided Missile” of the canadian singer Alexander McKenzie and her band The Underpaid will be released on 2nd of April in 2010 on the german label
Alexander, whose name is Lori in reality, was born in 1979 in Winnipeg in the West of Canada and emigrated at the age of 20 years to the Netherlands where she currently lives. With her voice she
touches you deeply and the instrumental sound of her Dutch group fits perfectly. Her music is influenced by Fiona Apple, Radiohead or Joni Mitchel.
On their new album “Ribcage Versus Unguided Missile” Alexander McKenzie & the Underpaid are on a quest to discover the secret of true melancholic happiness. Alexander McKenzie and The
Underpaid (Evert Aalten, Ingmaar Spaaij, Jan Pohl and Max van Zutphen) show us a poignant melancholy and nostalgic cynicism, translated by affecting vocals and a vintage instrumental sound.
Before doing the release Alexander McKenzie & The Underpaid will be on tour with „Songs & Whispers“ in February and March 2010 in Germany and the Netherlands.
