Single Review: ALA.NI – Suddenly

Released: 6th July 2015 (Physical)
Label: No Format Records

With her mesmerising, gentle voice and whimsical chord sequences London’s ALA.NI captured the hearts (and ears) of the country when she appeared on the season finale of Jools Holland’s early 2015 series.

Now following her resounding success she is set to release her forthcoming E.P. You & I: Summer in July with the single Suddenly leading the way.

Her vocals and songwriting at first listen could place her firmly in a bygone era, with a likeness to Billie Holliday or Ella Fitzgerald, with the musicality and melodies similar to Gershwin. There’s a pure and clean approach to the production, ALA.NI needs no whistles and bells and the stripped down feel to the arrangement showcases her beautiful vocal tones.

Having achieved critical success within the last 6 months, ALA.NI is set to be the stand out artist of 2015.
