Lexi Noise Brings Back Some 90s Rock Influence In Their Newest Single “Archangel”

The 90s and early 2000s have come roaring back, whether it’s fashion choices such as flannels or musical genres such as grunge and pop punk returning in popularity. Many bands have been incorporating elements of these musical genres into their music, bringing rock to a new audience. Anyone who is a fan of this period of alternative rock music will rock out to Lexi Noise’s latest single, “Archangel.”    

“Archangel” starts with a singular guitar rift, similar to something from Metallica or even Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man” (not 90s, but still a great rock song), before adding a powerful percussion line. Soon, haunting vocals join in, with a rawness reminiscent of Radiohead, backed up by shouting backup vocals. The spoken word sections flow in a way that is reminiscent of The Flobots, bringing a more modern twist to the track. 

The alternative hard rock track uses a metaphor for war to describe complicated and toxic love. The opening lines, “Am I the face of your dreams?/Does my voice strike fear my love?” are sung intoxicatingly, almost taunting the listener. This is juxtaposed by the chorus, “This ain’t real/This ain’t love,” which has more grit and anger behind them.

Lexi Noise came to being after meeting in North Carolina at Elon University. During this time, the quintet spent most of their time in school playing music together before officially becoming Lexi Noise in late 2020. In 2021, the band released their first self-titled album featuring the stand-out track “Candle High.” Since then, they have played numerous concerts in the South Eastern part of the United States, growing in popularity and releasing their second album Broadway Chronicles
