The Hug and Pint Presents Alessi's Ark + Kate McCabe & Bethany Ferrie 14.09.19
It’s been a gradual burning, shimmering process for the remarkable Alessi’s Ark. A name and cinematic voice which has been built upon years of experimentation, travel, resilience and triumph. Alessi has since toured extensively in the UK, Europe, US and Japan in support of her releases with M.Ward, Jenny Lewis, Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling, Sharon Van Etten and John Grant, amongst others.
‘The understated arrangements suggest you’re listening to a woman with impeccable taste’ – MOJO
‘It takes several plays to appreciate all the small touches that make each delicate piece’ - THE GUARDIAN
‘Finely crafted folk is elevated towards greatness by the stunning voice of Alessi Laurent-Marke’ - CLASH MAGAZINE
Love Is The Currency is the fourth studio full-length from Alessi’s Ark, arriving over four years on from LP3, The Still Life.
"The core theme of Love Is The Currency is our limitless ability to heal one another though music, healthy love, healing frequencies and working through previously unprocessed grief,” explains Alessi. "With 'Cut The Cord', I wanted to make a song that could encourage people to save themselves from fear and the grip of toxicity's many guises."
Long-time Maccabees engineer Jago Jago produces 'Love Is The Currency,' with Will White (brother of Maccabees members Felix and Hugo) helping co-write. Jago Jago's brother Memby is on drums, with the aforementioned Felix White contributing guitar on "Wives".
Alessi's Ark will celebrate the album's release at London's Paper Vintage Dress on 25th October.
