Eyes Set To Kill’s Alexia Rodriguez Announces Solo Album & Releases Acoustic Version Of “Reach” Online

Eyes Set To Kill’s frontwoman Alexia Rodriguez has set an October 12th, 2010 release date for her new solo album “Lexia: Underground Sounds”. The album is set to include acoustic versions of classic Eyes Set To Kill tracks, a cover of Radiohead’s “Climbing Up The Walls”, and all new material that takes Lexia in a whole new direction. Lexia is currently streaming an acoustic version of the song “Reach” online at this location >

“When I’m on the road I have nothing but time on my hands, so for the most part I’m always trying to find something constructive to kill the time,” Lexia commented. “The songs I write on the road are mellow and chilled, which don’t necessarily work as Eyes Set To Kill songs. I try to write songs in different styles and genres and just demo them for myself. I never thought about putting out a solo album, but my manager heard them and freaked out saying, ‘These are amazing, you have to release them!’ At first I was nervous and wondering what my band would think, but they were super supportive of the idea.”

Rodriguez wants fans to see a different side of her with the release of her debut solo album, “Lexia: Underground Sounds”. Dark, atmospheric indie pop, and extremely melodic, “Lexia; Underground Sounds” plays to Rodriguez’s strengths as a songwriter. Unshackled from the expectations of fans and the confines of her bandmates, it’s here that she flourishes and blossoms with confidence as a vocalist and artist, to evoke comparisons to Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.
