Alex & Sierra, winners of the third and final season of The X Factor USA, make their official debut with the premiere of “Scarecrow“! After being mentored by Simon Cowell and becoming the first and only group to win the American version of the show, the pop duo consisting of couple Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton, are finally preparing the release of their debut album for later this year via Columbia and Syco Records. Lead single “Scarecrow,” co-written with Sam Hollander and Martin Johnson, is a giddy indie-pop jam about the pair’s real-life love for each other that’s driven by infectious guitar strums, and a anthemic folk-tinged chorus made perfect for the airwaves. Considering folk inspired songs are still all over the radio at the moment (Pitbull‘s “Timber,” One Direction‘s “Story Of My Life,” Avicii‘s “Hey Brother“), Alex and Sierra‘s “Scarecrow” could very well be a successful debut for them given the right push – I’m into it. What do you guys think?
Alex & Sierra will digitally release their debut single “Scarecrow” on Monday (June 2)!
