West London-born singer ALA.NI has announced that her album You & I will debut in the U.S. on May 12 via Missing Piece Records. In addition to the release date, ALA.NI also revealed a new music video for her haunting song “Darkness at Noon.”
If you have yet to listen to ALA.NI’s jazzy, dreamy vocals, it’s probably time to change that. Ever since we hosted the singer for a session at the Paste Studio, we’ve been more than a little obsessed with the rising star. She’s even featured prominently in the very first edition of Paste Quarterly, as you’ll see soon. The style of her vocals is reminiscent of Billie Holiday or Judy Garland, but her talent goes beyond a 1940s throwback. ALA.NI is completely unique, and anyone that listens to her is liable to be immediately drawn into her genre-defying, ethereal web.
