“Singing like a cross between Hope Sandoval and Bjork, Laurent-Marke has made a record of deceptive simplicity” - BBC

Three years on from her final album as Alessi’s ArkAlessi Laurent-Marke prepares for the release of her new album with the single 'Wives'. Wistful with trademark melodies and hooks, 'Wives' is a winsome assertion of female independence.

Alessi's folk pop has evolved over the years from it’s humble bedroom beginnings and these days has more in common with Cocteau Twins or Charlotte Gainsbourg than the somewhat lazy Joanna Newsom comparisons of old. From uploading home recordings to Myspace to working with Bright Eyes in Nebraska and touring the UK with Jenny Lewis and M.Ward it’s been a long and winding road for Alessi which has no doubt shaped her songs.

'Wives' sounds like a very British tale being told in a California desert setting. It’s a beautifully produced and expertly executed taster from the new record which will no doubt excite fans both old and new.
