Between – alextbh

“Between,” released on May 15, finds alextbh crooning about intimacy, and further exploring this theme as a queer pop artist. “I wanted to see how comfortable I could be with my sexuality in my songwriting,” says the artist. “It feels empowering to write something explicit in a physical context and I guess it’s something I should explore more often.” The song illustrates a bond with a partner, both sexually and otherwise, and how it feels to revel in this bond. Opening the song, alextbh sings:

You know what the fuck is up, boy
There’s a universe in your eyes
They can never ever lie, boy
Stardust settle in my mind
You know where it hits right
You know when it feels right
Elevate to the skies 

“Between” delves into a connectivity mutually shared in every healthy relationship, one that remains genuine while exploring its intoxicating possibilities. The song fosters a unique understanding of affection, and narrates this from a queer perspective with eloquence. Similarly to Troye Sivan’s “Bloom” or Sam Smith’s “To Die For,” alextbh brings his personal experiences as an LGBTQ+ person to “Between,” showcasing honest humanity and one’s desire for closeness. As the artist explains, “Queer bodies are human bodies and there’s nothing wrong with trying to frame that intimate moment and showcase it.”

Speed it up or stay in slow motion
Either way I’ll prove my devotion
Oh, let me give it to ya
Nothing ever comes between
Nothing ever comes between us
Nothing ever comes between
When I get between ya

Since his debut in 2016, alextbh has found impressive streaming success, amassing millions upon millions of streams while openly sharing his experiences in queer relationships. His knack for blending infectious R&B beats with potable pop sensibilities have proven that he is a formidable artist on the rise, absconding from norms and carving out a singular place in music. “Between” now only adds fuel to his impressive fire, as alextbh continues to utilize his unique storytelling to his advantage.



“Between” employs a narrative of passion, denoting that sometimes, physicality is what matters, and exploring one’s sexual symbiosis with a partner only helps further develop the relationship.

You know what the fuck is up, boy
There’s a universe in your eyes
Conversations run dry, boy
So roll up, leave it all behind
You know where it hits right
You know when it feels right
Elevate to the skies

Curating a synergistic relationship with a partner is a paramount element of being human, and nurturing that synergy once it is developed allows us to thrive in passion and compassion. “Between” explicates this ideal wholeheartedly, and alextbh brilliantly chronicles it. “Between” encapsulates the most thrilling parts of two people bonding together, and celebrating it in all of its raw and compelling charm.
