One of New Zealand’s finest emerging acts alae release their self-titled debut EP today, along with 6 accompanying music videos through alae.band and Youtube.
Recorded over 5 days at Roundhead Studios in October 2016, the alae EP is a collection of beautifully crafted songs that will become the soundtrack to your most heartfelt quiet moments. The self-funded and self-produced release features 5 emotive new tracks, plus their debut single ‘All Gived Up’ which made it to number one spot on the singer/songwriter iTunes NZ chart in March.
It’s been a big year for Auckland based Alex Farrell-Davey and Allister Meffan, the two old high school mates who together form alae. Playing everything from local gigs to cruise ships, the duo has also supported nationwide tours for Anna Coddington and Hollie Smith and have now been added to the main stage line up at Gisborne’s Rhythm & Vines on December 31st. The multi-instrumentalist duo then performs as part of Auckland Museum’s Volume: Making Music in Aotearoa exhibition, before continuing to tour NZ over the Summer of 2017.
Says Alex Farrell-Davey, “It’s been a huge 2016. We have all worked really hard over the last few months to finish the EP and to create these videos, and have pulled favors from mates, venues and family along the way - it has truly been a huge team effort but the results have been worth it. We’re stoked to have not only the EP out but also the visuals which further express what alae are about.”
For a taste of alae’s live experience, check out a spine tingling version of the late Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, part of the Black & White Sessions as recorded for NZ Music Month 2016.
To celebrate the EP and video release, alae perform an intimate show tonight at Auckland’s Golden Dawn, Ponsonby from 8pm. Entry is free and physical copies of the EP will be available for purchase.
