12" Black Vinyl
The artist formally known as Alessi’s Ark, then briefly Alessi, has returned to her vessel to record a brand new LP, produced by Jag Jago (The Maccabees). The album also features Jag Jago’s brother on drums, Maccabees’ Felix White on guitar and Will White (brother of Felix and Maccabees’ fellow-guitarist Hugo) helping co-write. An album of self-discovery and a call to self-realisation Love Is The Currency is epitomised by lead track Cut The Cord. A song written about Alessi’s own experience, unearthing fear and breaking free, to seek redemption in music, art and beauty, Cut The Cord motors on a breezy groove with a host of hooks and enchanting vocals.
Her new album is full of very personal tales, self discovery and shared experience, told in a mixture of sonic settings; the California desert, alpine air, ocean sprays and the highland bothies all evoked in unfussy yet expansive production.
