Alex Wellkers, hailing from the heart of Switzerland, Zurich, takes us on a journey with his sophomore album, “Fly Away.” Blending elements of alt-rock and hard rock with classical instrumentation, Wellkers crafts a collection of dramatic pop and rock songs that are as captivating as they are ambitious.

Tracks like “We Celebrate” and “We Try Our Best” exude an infectious energy, while “Niemals Jemals Da Gewesen” and “Tu Sais Que Je T’aime” offer a glimpse into Wellkers’ multilingual prowess, catering to audiences beyond the English-speaking world.

However, it’s not perfect. While the majority of the album hits the mark, there are moments where Wellkers’ ambition may outpace his execution.

“What You Think Right Now” teeters on the edge of being too heavy-handed for some listeners, veering into territory that may alienate those seeking a softer touch.

The album culminates in “Do Not Fall,” a genre-bending crossover track that sees Wellkers blending his influences with his signature sound.

In conclusion, “Fly Away” is a bold statement from an artist unafraid to push the boundaries of genre and language. While not without its flaws, it’s clear that Alex Wellkers is a talent to watch, with the potential to soar, buckle up, dear listeners, and prepare to take flight with Alex Wellkers – the journey is just beginning.
