Listening to Emby Alexander, I hear an array of influences.

On Sunlight (In the Back of Your Head), released in July, I hear an amalgamation of the Beatles, Elliott Smith, Broken Social Scene and Belle & Sebastian. It’s pretty great stuff, and well-mixed for how much shit is going on in the song. It’s poppy without being too happy. In fact, there’s sort of a stoic, nonchalant vibe wrapped up in Alexander’s vocals.

Overall, the sound is cool, sparkly, indie-pop with a pinch of psychedelic, and a little reminiscent of ’90s indie rock.
