Orange Days on Lemon Street - Full Album by Lex Land
Fans of folky introspective songwriters and soulful singers alike will love the warm embrace of Land’s melancholic yet hopeful voice. Orange Days begs us each to hold on to the romantic ideals of youth.
At age 19, budding singer-songwriter LEX LAND was working her way through typical coming-of-age challenges. After being disconnected from her family and heading out on her own, dropping out of college, and losing her first love, her lifelong passion for music began to take shape in the form of confessional songwriting as a coping mechanism. On the few and far between days off from work, she trekked by train and foot between her home terrain of Orange County to Los Angeles to begin tackling recording her first collection of songs – what would, a few years later, become a critically-acclaimed and beloved debut album: Orange Days on Lemon Street. This album is folky, mellow, groovy, and great for fans of thoughtful acoustic pop.
The songs of Orange Days bounce from lighthearted musings on whether a crush is reciprocated to much heavier fare – grappling with insurmountable familial difficulties, the frustration of navigating the world while weighed down by a depressive personality, or wondering whether a person history has deemed unlovable can, in fact, ever be loved at all.
With several songs from this album featured on television shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Private Practice, and One Tree Hill, Lex has acquired die-hard fans with her unusual approach to songwriting and her sometimes brutal honesty. Introspection isn’t always pretty, but it is necessary to grow and heal. Orange Days On Lemon Street documents one dreamy adolescent’s journey into becoming a more complete adult – for better or for worse. Land’s candor lets us breathe a little sigh of relief in that we aren’t all that different when it comes to figuring that out.
