alessi’s lilting, folk-tinged songs are lifted to new heights with brilliant flashes of orchestral pop.

a work both lucid & heartbreakingly lovely, exploring themes of travel, adventure & personal revelation in a sonic landscape that roams a wide range of emotions. for this album alessi laurent–marke says "i wanted to create a musical landscape that varied in sound, but an overriding feeling of 'stillness' remained throughout the album. i also wanted to step back from playing acoustic guitar & immerse the songs in very different sound settings from previous recordings". a sense of warmth is all over 'the still life'; in the shimmering production, in the players’ performances & in the slow, sweet sway that underlies all the album tracks.
