Electropop Dreams is the debut EP by music producer and songwriter Alex Zink. The first single “The Moon” was announced in December of 2013 and released on February 4th, 2014. The EP followed up 2 months later and was released on May 3rd, 2014. Alex said that the EP was a reflection of his inner battle, and the tracklist showed exactly who he is. The opening track, Ready to Fight, is “the cheesy self-proclaimed success song” that just about every artist writes somewhere in their career. The song uses sassiness, bitchiness, and confidence to express that he is ready to start his life, and nobody can tell him otherwise. It’s Alex’s diva side. The 2nd track, The Moon, which was also his debut single, is his creative side. Alex says that he feels almost electric in the nighttime. He has used the word nocturnal to describe himself in the past, because he usually feels tired and unmotivated during the day, but alive and inspired after the sun goes down. Alex also stated that “The moon will set me free, and the stars light up my energy” is his favorite that he’s ever written. The 3rd track is titled Go Down, which shows his aggravated and hopeless side. According to Alex, he usually doesn’t specifically remember how he was feeling when writing most of his songs. However, the day he wrote Go Down is crystal clear to him. The song was written after he had almost a mental breakdown. Alex felt as if he was the only person in the world with no one else to rely on. He said that he had been working on his music and he was very proud of what he had accomplished, but it seemed like no one was paying attention. His friends and family constantly made him feel like he was wasting his time and not doing anything that was actually important. After writing the song in January of 2014, he couldn’t seem to figure out how to produce the song. He had planned on saving it for a later project, but after realizing it fit perfectly over a new instrumental he had produced in March, he knew it had to make the EP cut. Drug Addict is the 4th track on the EP, taking a very different turn from track 3. Alex said that he was worried people would find the tracklist annoying, because Drug Addict is such an upbeat pop song, and it’s right in the middle of two emotional songs. The reason he kept the tracklist that way was actually well thought out, however. He wanted the EP to perfectly represent every version of him and all the emotions he goes through in a day. Going from sassy, to creative, to angry, to happy, to depressed is just a normal day in the life of Alex. Drug Addict definitely shows his fun side, and his comical personality. Finally, Glitch closes the EP. Glitch represents Alex’s dark side. His vulnerable, truly hopeless state of mind where he just feels like an object with no true purpose or emotion. Alex refers to himself as feeling like a robot at times, and Glitch is the perfect example of that. The song is a fan favorite, and Alex’s favorite song on the EP as well. It’s by far the most emotional song on the EP and really expresses the sad nature of it all. Drug Addict was originally set to be the 2nd single, but due to popularity, Glitch was announced the 2nd and last single of the EP.
