Must-listen: Alexandra Savior - 'Shades'.

After premiering on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show yesterday, Alexandra Savior’s first 'official' song, 'Shades', is now available for you to listen to endlessly - and it’s really, really good.

Produced and co-written with James Ford and Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner, 'Shades' perfectly showcases Savior’s butter-wouldn’t-melt vocals with casual one-liners such as, "I’m always happy to be leaving / Could be the company I’m keeping."

Here's one who cannot be tamed.

Savior herself, describes her music as: "Sassy impolite spaghetti western music."

And about her new song? "It’s about knowing you’re doing something you’re not supposed to be and revelling in it."

You will like, if you like: Lana Del Rey, The Last Shadow Puppets, Nancy Sinatra, The Kills, Lykke Li, Zella Day, Leighton Meester, BØRNS, Mini Mansions... and channelling your inner Scarlett O'Hara.
