Grayshott is a village in Southern England who doesn’t have loads to brag about when it comes to popular culture, but with 2400 inhabitants it should be more than all right to have fostered actor Colin Firth, and of course the pop musician that goes under the name of Rex Orange County. The latter is really Alex O’Connor, a youngster who’s melodic and soulful singer-songwriter pop has given him loads of streams and love for songs such as Loving Is Easy, Sunflower and Best Friend. What brought him to wider public though, was his collaborations with Tyler, The Creator on his album Flower Boy (2017). “I laughed all the time” O’Connor said about the recording sessions in California. This summer, Rex Orange County will do his first Swedish performance at Way Out West.
