"Founder, vocalist and central figure Arlene Sparacia rebooted her project HR Lexy in 2018 with new collaborator Justin Verted, and the pair’s recent work pushes boundaries in both electronic pop music and performance art. The group’s 2018 EP My Mouth Is Your Mouth and 2019 album Art Overego feature nuanced examinations of human relationships, contemplations of life and death and more, and HR Lexy’s live performances integrate inventive choreography (often for one or two dancers), costumes and set pieces that you might expect from a creative mind like Björk." Nashville Scene Magazine
"Theatrical & interpretive, HR_Lexy's Arlene Sparacia designs a gripping and mysterious show. Utilizing carefully choreographed dancers, lights, costuming, and stage adornments, Arlene's performances manage to fuse the organic and innate against her synthetic, new-age synthscapes. The biggest delight - her anguished and operatic voice - soars atop the smoky and synaptic musical landscape, conjuring images of an infuriated queen whose voice reverberates throughout her castle's walls." -Jesse Gillenwalters
"Combining otherworldly electric beats, cosmic goddess vocals and a strong, dark groove, HR_Lexy transcends genre barriers and will leave you feeling some type of way." -Far Out Fest
“HR_Lexy would have fit in perfectly on the label 4AD during its heyday. Lush, dark, and dreamy.” Adam Alexis McDole – Host WXNA Nashville Radio
"In the four or so years since HR Lexy popped onto my radar as an inventive electronic-pop project, central figure Arlene Sparacia’s scope has expanded in fascinating directions. On top of adding a two-person dance crew — whose costumes and choreography suggest natural, cyclical patterns of life and death — Sparacia brought musician Justin Verted into the fold, and the two have concocted a melancholy yet propulsive electronic-dance soundscape. It’s perfect for Sparacia’s distinctive vocals and resonant lyrics about complicated emotional territory" -STEPHEN TRAGESER (The Nashville Scene)
“The songs on this short, 5 track, album are absolutely brilliant. There is a hauntingly beautiful quality to both voice and sound that reminds me of old Kate Bush meets Siouxsie and the Banshees meets a female fronted Cure.”
925 Rebellion Magazine
"..you could say Sparacia is some kind of middle ground between Marina Abramovic and Siouxsie Sioux; you could say they pay homage to the theatrics of Kate Bush, the ethereal surrealness of Cocteau Twins, or the dark campiness of Bauhaus." -Native Magazine
"If you appreciate dark and introspective electronic pop, you'll want to know Music City's own HR Lexy, the outfit fronted by Arlene Sparacia. Her songs often examine complicated emotions within carefully crafted electronic soundscapes — sort of like she's taking an auditory trip in order to better process them." -Stephen Trageser (The Nashville Scene)
