Three years on from her final album as Alessi’s Ark, Alessi 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.
“Wives is a meditation on womanhood and the powerful roles, responsibilities and loving duties all women strive to fulfil in their lifetimes. Inspired by women in my own family, in my close circle of friends and in widely woven feminine collective.” says Alessi.
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.
