Making songs that get all up in your feelings, Alex O’Connor, better known by his moniker Rex Orange County, has captured the hearts of lovesick teenagers and heartbroken kids alike.

In 2016, he released his debut album, “Bcos U Will Never B Free,” and in 2017, he released his second album “Apricot Princess.” Shortly after the release of his second album, he was featured on Tyler, the Creator’s album “Flower Boy.” Tyler found Rex Orange County through his debut album and brought him to Los Angeles.

Though he’s been making music for a while, it was his single, ‘Loving Is Easy’ featuring Benny Sings, that finally grasped the attention of alternative radio stations. Take a listen and it just might grasp yours, too.
