Alexx Calise In Avanti Review

Alexx Calise proves that girls can rock just as hard as the guys can! The sophomore album In Avanti has been released exclusively through the official website. Alexx is really creating big attention as a modern alternative electro rock artist with an original, new, fresh & exciting sounding band!

In Avanti is the highly anticipated follow up to the 2007 debut album release Morning Pill 

What I like the most about the sound of the new album is the variation of style of writing pop rock and dance rock songs. In Avanti blends a good variety of pop rock from the sweetness of See You Again, Cry & Out of Sight. Then there are the electro-rock dance sounds of Anything Goes, Break Me & Good Enough.

There is a sense of urgency through the album with a fast paced feel as the album clocks in at 32 minutes. It does not feel that short when you listen to it because of the mixing of the tracks which is a real strong point to this release. Overall the selection of songs is really catchy as you feel as though you want to know more about Alexx. Her influences include the big eighties/nineties alternative rock sounds of Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Aerosmith & Silverchair.

Alexx Calise is touring all around California at the moment. She is picking up regular gigs and radio play across all forms of media. There is a strong online presence for her material on you tube including interviews. She is a pure talent who has a great musical career ahead of her. She displays the right attitude to give people who enjoy a mixed style of rock music something new and interesting. 

Fronting a hard rock band comes naturally to Alexx. Her band is up and coming. Based on what I've heard from the new album I would love to catch her at a local gig to hear the live sound. Alexx also has a side project called Sound of Cancer. 

In Avanti will be one of the top alternative electro rock albums of 2010.

A track by track guide to In Avanti

Anything Goes

Brilliant opening track which has a big guitar sound to it. A wall of sound showcasing Alexx’s unique style.

Break Me

This is the one! This track stands out the most to me as one of the strongest tracks of the album. When you listen to the flow of this you will find instant rockability.


A Tender moment in the album. Alexx and her guitar sounding very sweet.

Get Used To It

Big rock soundscape.   Another well mixed track with strong vocals.

Good Enough (The Dirty South Mix)

“Nothing’s ever good enough for you!” “What!”  This is another of my favourites of the album. Very catchy.

My Song (Version2.0)

This song is very danceable. High energy a dance electro hit. Turn this one up loud!

Out of Sight

A beautiful song that has come straight from the heart. Achingly pure with great lyrics.

Saying Goodbye

A big time rock track. This track has been mixed well to create a good ambience.

See You Again

This song is going to be a big hit once it hits the rest of the ears of the world. It is the perfect track to introduce new listeners to Alexx Calise.

I recommend Alexx Calise to fans of Alanis Morissette, Avril Lavigne, Killing Heidi & Paramore.
