about

Landless, the debut album from Melbourne songstress Ali E is a fearless, uncompromising and visceral outing. From the opening track, ‘Lovely Water’, Ali E creates an air of instant intimacy with the listener and this easy familiarity continues until ‘Charlie Brooker’ clicks off some forty minutes later. A bold first statement, Landless completes the picture outlined by first singles, ‘So It Goes’ and the album’s title track.
Whilst primarily featuring just Ali E’s voice and guitar in an array layered permutations, Landless traverses myriad expressions in light and shade. Raw yet rich with strummed rhythm and weaving melodies, and subtle hints of drums, bass and keys, the tracks that make up Landless gradually build momentum, giving the impression of continuous movement through wide open spaces; stirring reactions both physical and emotional.
Stepping out on her own, Landless represents marked departure from Ali E’s work with Melbourne projects Damn Terran and Ferry Tails.
