ALA.NI gained her singing chops by performing with artists as diverse as Mary J. Blige, Andrea Bocelli and Damon Albarn. Her voice is fragile yet strong, her sound is anachronistic yet completely perfect for now. Not only is she a performer, but she directed the video for “Cherry Blossom”. A refreshingly creative new talent.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 08 April 2015
Ala.ni or Al.ani, A.Lani, Alani or Alan. I? It’s hip to have a dot in your name these days and Ala.ni has, let’s face it, put it in the right place. She’s sung with Mary J Bilge and Damon Albarn in the past and lead track ‘Cherry Blossom’ is an old fashioned thing that I’d imagine could be marketed right at my grandma. You can almost smell the lavender puff, taste the Lemon Meringue pie and touch the soap-on-a-rope. It’s a dainty little thing, as soft and gentle as the cherry blossom she sings of - a summery delight. Overleaf is something that makes the A side sound like Skrillex, as vintage as a tea dance in the village hall, as old timey as a washing mangle.
