On her upcoming debut album Strange Portrait, Oregon-bred singer and songwriter Alexandra Savior grapples with questions of identity. With her first single "Mirage," Savior sings from the point of view of Anna-Marie Mirage, an alter ego who "paints her teardrops on" and "sings songs about whatever the fuck they want". Savior explores the gaps between her own identities through piercing lyrics that she delivers in a languid, world-weary voice and sets against a minimalist, noir-pop backdrop created with her collaborator, singer Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys, The Last Shadow Puppets), with whom she co-wrote nearly all of the songs; Turner produced the album with James Ford, who has worked with Arctic Monkeys, Jessie Ware, and Florence and the Machine, among others. The lush late-'60s/early-'70s sound is the perfect backdrop for an affecting album that details the self-doubt that arises from being thrust into an industry where everyone seems perfect. "I think a lot of the album is about the social anxiety that's followed me throughout my life," she says. "The songs are me residing in that fantasy life where I am this perfect creature I'm supposed to be."
