It’s the wakeful protective words of a friend with a gulp of guitars and pedals that stream through the ears right in the heart of things. A comfort beer after beating yourself all day up inside. Im sure you like listening to true singers/songwriters.
Creatures is full of little triumphant moments of hardship; with folk inspired
melodies that illustrate small moments of internal, social and political
conflict, run through the shredder with some punk leaning instrumentals , Creatures will be released as a limited edition 10-inch, pressed on transparent
orange vinyl and available from alie.bandcamp.com, selected stores and on tour.
> Recorded at Sing Sing South by Anna Laverty | Mastered by Mikey Young
From a song writing perspective, Ali’s new tracks have shaped up to be anchored to issues she really cares about. Inspired by the rage she’s witnessing in the people around her, her songs – although not overtly – explore the response to Australia’s conservative political climate, particularly about having a voice and being ignored. “Current politics is so entrenched in people’s minds, and sub-consciously it’s also coming across in my song writing.” But Ali’s songs aren’t all about capturing the rage. “I’ve also written about singing Kurt Vile and Those Darlins’ songs in front of an open fire with friends,” she says. “And if I could, I’d probably just write songs about my dog.”
