Alessi’s Ark are set to release their new album ‘Time Travel’ through Bella Union on April 25th.
Real name Alessi Laurent-Marke, Alessi’s Ark have a real independent streak. Not yet 21 the songwriter has already turned her back on Virgin, choosing to depart for the more relaxed climes of Bella Union.
Signing with the celebrated indie, last year’s ‘Soul Proprietor’ EP saw Alessi’s Ark move forwards. Maturing with every release, her plaintive acoustic styles now have a renewed confidence.
Heading straight back into the recording studio, sessions were split between Brighton and Wales. Deliberately secluding herself, Alessi’s Ark focussed so much on songwriting that time seemed to fly by.
“In Brighton, we did 12 hour days and had no idea what was going on in the outside world. In Wales, there was no phone signal, and it felt far away from everything” she explains.
