LISTEN: alextbh Reworks Cigarettes After Sex’s ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’ Into His First Malay Song

Now revealed to be the opening act of Urbanscapes Pres. Clean Bandit, it’s only fitting that producer-crooner alextbh reworked a song by another Urbanscapes act; Cigarettes After Sex. He’s not content with just doing a regular cover though – Alex repurposes their most popular track ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’ into his first Malay-language song, only keeping the original’s English chorus. Sonically, it’s also a departure from the alt. r’n’b tunes you’ve come to expect from him as it’s closer to the band’s self-described denomination, ‘ambient pop’, showing just how versatile he is musically.
