Alessi’s Ark to play The Cuban Embassy Birmingham

London based singer-songwriter Alessi’s Ark AKA Alessi Laurent-Marke releases a warming video this February for the single ‘DLD (Door Light Dream)’ from her new album Love is the Currency, produced by Mercury Prize nominated producer Jago Jago, and in collaboration with Felix and Will White of The Maccabees.

‘DLD’ (Door.Light.Dream), is the directorial debut for long-time friends Aude Chagnon-Caument and Paris based photographer, Julien Bourgeois. Having collaborated on the album cover of Love is the Currency, Julien and Aude were the natural pairing for Alessi’s new video. 

Hailing from Hammersmith, Alessi Laurent-Marke takes influence from bands such as Broken Social Scene to incorporate electronic elements into folk songwriting. Her work has seen her tour with the likes of Laura Marling, M. Ward and John Grant. 

Alessi’s Ark will be performing a string of live dates across the UK in May 2018 following a tour of Japan as well as a US stint with Jake Bellows (Neva Dinova / Whispertown) in June 2018.
