Alexa Lash’s latest EP, “Heartbreak in Movements,” is a testament to the power of emotion in music. With five acoustic tracks, Lash explores the intricacies of heartbreak through five stages: disappointment, questioning, bargaining, release, and reminiscence. What sets “Heartbreak in Movements” apart from other break-up albums is its acoustically organic sound. Recorded in an open room with piano and strings, each note and strum can be felt to the bone.
Alexa Lash wrote, sang, and played piano on each track, and was joined by local Miami musicians Belinda Stohner and Jose Pradas on the strings. From the opening track, “Not Fine,” which delves into the self-doubt and criticism that often accompanies heartbreak, to the fifth track, “MIA,” which provides closure through nostalgia, Lash’s vocals are super-catchy and emotive, carrying listeners through each moment of heartache.
The second track, “Weak,” is a standout, featuring lyrics that explore the emotional toxicity of coming to terms with an unhealthy relationship. Lash also doesn’t shy away from the complexities of toxic relationships in her third track, “Miracle,” showcasing someone fighting the toxicity of the relationship as the one holding it together.
The fourth track, “Let Her Move On,” is a powerful anthem about finding personal growth and moving on after a break-up. It is clear that Lash has come out of the other side of heartbreak stronger, and this is evident in the uplifting and motivational tone of this song.
