Like most of humanity in the past two years, Alex the Astronaut also experienced the isolating separation that the pandemic has imposed on us. Her latest single “Airport” navigates through those hefty emotions while reflecting on the newfound sweetness one finds in being reunited with their loved ones. The video features Alex traveling from Sydney to New York where we get to witness a reunion that took many years in the making. 

“I was seeing that separation all around and experiencing it myself, and I wanted to write about what happens when you meet up with someone you care about after such a long time, and all the pressure that comes with that,” noted Alex. She also added, “I wanted to write a love story that doesn’t have an end, that you can choose what happens to them. Pick your adventure.”
