Melbourne-based singer-songwriter and producer Alex Lahey returns today with her fierce new single, "Spike The Punch". The release of "Spike The Punch" also coincides with the announcement of Lahey’s signing to Liberation Records.

An explosive power-pop track, propelled by Lahey’s knack for indisputable hooks and fiery, confessional lyrics, "Spike The Punch" marks her first release since writing and recording ‘On My Way,’ the theme song for Sony Picture Animation’s The Mitchells vs The Machines, now Netflix’s biggest animated release of all time. Lahey produced ‘Spike The Punch’ alongside John Castle, with Grammy Award winner Carlos de la Garza (Paramore/Hayley Williams, Cherry Glazerr, Best Coast) lending his mixing skills to the track.

“‘Spike The Punch’ is a song about the fun that comes with self-sabotage and reckless abandon. It's big, it's loud, it's fun, it's its own beast,” says Lahey. “There are some super sinister tones in there rubbing up against really bright anime-style guitar harmonies (guitarmonies, anyone?) and shout choruses. Spike feels like a raucous bookend to navigating these cruelly unpredictable times. Touch wood."
