Alex & Sierra charmed ‘X Factor’ viewers with their performances of A Great Big World‘s ‘Say Something’ and Sara Bareilles‘ ‘Gravity.’ Now the duo is giving fans an even closer look at their music with their debut single, ‘Scarecrow.’
The folk-infused track is instantly infectious. Seriously, we can’t get enough of that beat. The single shows why Alex & Sierra won the singing competition. Their incredible dynamic, coupled with their clear, beautiful voices, makes for a stunning song.
At its heart, ‘Scarecrow’ is a sweet tribute to a love that appears to be slipping away. “You used to be my solid ground / I’m drowning in the sea,” the duo sing. “I just want to believe in you and me.”
Of course, the lyric video captures the heartfelt emotions of the song. Two puppets — adorable representations of Alex & Sierra — struggle to go about their daily lives as they duet the track. It’s the perfect way to put an endearing spin on a heartbreaking song.
