Alev Lenz – If Love 
Alev Lenz - If Love

Release Date: Out Now

This year, more than any other year, I have been touched by the beauty and emotive impact of music on so many levels. So when a simple yet hugely powerful tune like Alev Lenz’s new single ‘If Love’ comes along I was always likely to be stopped in my tracks. The bare piano melody and intimate vocals of the German native but London dwelling singer-songwriter are reminiscent of Regina Spektor, for sure, but there’s also something of Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt’ about this as the relentless, almost funereal swell of the song forces the sting of tears in to the back of your eyes. A beautifully subtle talent, then, but one that you could really do with giving your undying attention to for three minutes of your life.
