Alex Lahey Shares Live Acoustic Video For “Unspoken History”

Posted on 08/21/2019

This past spring, Alex Lahey released her sophomore album, The Best of Luck Club, “…a welcome and wide-open look at mid-twenties inertia and queer romance” (Pitchfork). The album’s centerpiece is “Unspoken History,” a sparse, melancholic tune which catches Lahey at her most vulnerable. Today, she presents a video showcasing a special, intimate performance of the track in its most distilled version.

“‘Unspoken History’ is perhaps the most personal song on the album. So personal that I’d rather keep the direct story behind it to myself – at least for now,” says Lahey. “The song was written on my girlfriend’s guitar in a tiny room in Nashville. This video more or less depicts the song in its purest form – played on the very same guitar, exactly how I first heard it when it spilled out of my mouth.”
