South London imprint Yala! Records wanted to have an impact.
Gathering the more creative aspects of London's guitar scene, the label wanted to add something different, a little bit more energy.
Thus far, they've certainly succeeded. A flurry of singles from YAK, The Magic Gang and more have put them on the map, while regular Yala! Sessions at their Bermondsey base have resulted in some beautiful videography.
Alessi's Ark stopped past the Yala! studio earlier this year, previewing material from upcoming album 'Love Is The Currency'.
The songwriter explains: "The core theme of 'Love Is The Currency' is our limitless ability to heal one another though music, healthy love, healing frequencies and working through previously unprocessed grief..."
Clash has nabbed a video performance from the session, a version of the subtle yet stark folk hymn 'Wives'.
