Alex Lahey’s 2016 debut EP B-Grade University explores the existential crisis most 20-somethings face, documenting the struggle to embrace the highs and lows of adulthood when you’re a broke uni graduate. Ivy League arrives via feedback and melodic guitars as Lahey sings about the reality of having to assimilate to the “Nine to five heartache.”
Anyone in their 20s will agree that things never really feel as though they’re going right, but it certainly seems as though Lahey has found herself on the right path. In order to fund the EP Lahey sold her beloved Toyota Corolla, an impressive sacrifice that will no doubt see her catapult towards international acclaim.
