“If you have yet to listen to Paris-based singer ALA.NI, you should think about changing that…one listen and you’ll be hooked.” – Paste

“It’s almost a let-down to learn that she’s not a spectre but a functioning human” – The Guardian

“a wonderfully idiosyncratic album guaranteed to make guests stop and ask you what’s playing” – Montreal Gazette

British-born, Paris-based vocalist ALA.NI defies categorization. Each song on her debut YOU & I sounds like a forgotten gem – instantly familiar but eerily difficult to pin down – but all of the songs are original, written and produced by the artist as woozy and crepuscular David Lynch-ian miniatures. ALA.NI stopped many people dead in their tracks when she appeared on Later…with Jools Holland late last year, performing a Disney-gone-noir vocal, as compulsively anachronistic as the sensibility of the track itself. ALA.NI arrived with a voice that seems to take in the cadences of musical history, and an idiosyncratic creative approach to conveying her music, including spooky, self-produced Super 8 videos, 19th century photo techniques for album packaging and release formats that include wax cylinder recordings and even a miniature music box. Her vocal stylings have been compared to Billie Holiday, Minnie Ripperton, Lena Horne, Judy Garland or Julee Cruise, but this is no nostalgia trip and to make these simple comparisons would be, as Glamour noted “a disservice because the thing about this West London-born singer is that she is totally unique.”
