She comes from London, from the rattle and buzz of the Goldhawk Road, from the chatter and birdsong of Ravenscourt Park, from the neon hum of the 94 night-bus from the West End, on which she’d sit, late at night, passing students at the music college still practising their instruments, the sounds of strings and woodwind soaring into dark air. In the city where ALA.NI grew up, all music was magical. She comes to us with a voice that also feels magical, taking the dark romance of the past into our bright, modern world.
ALA.NI’s debut album tells us of timeless things as she sings: of love and romance and its strange, silver edges, and of the seasons and weathers of one particular, painful relationship, that bloomed with spring’s shoots, but died in winter’s heavy snow. Bringing together the four EPs she put together to chart this love story – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter – You & I lifts the shackles we put on our senses, and the rhythms of our hearts, as it tells us all about one extraordinary woman, and how she arrived here.
