Ali Love, writes, plays and produces all of his songs, and is set to become a cult phenomenon with his debut single 'K Hole' released on July 31st through "I Love Records". Living and working out of East London, Love's songs are soaked in wry observations of the world of lost weekends, dodgy after hours drinking dens and even dodgier one night stands that he sees happening all around him, interpreted through a musical palette that's one part Neptunes to two parts Cockney Rebel.
Ali's debut double A-side on his own I Love Music label sums up both his eclectism and razor sharp dissection of nightlife mores. 'K Hole' is a tongue in cheek travelogue through a debauched night out lost to horse tranquilisers, set to a glam rock-meets-psychobilly stomp while the b side Video Dream Girl is a perfect piece of digital new wave pop. Blondie meets My Sharona.
The enticing super 8-esque video for K Hole has been directed by the uber-hot digital collective Mini Vegas (who have recently directed videos for Test Icicles and The Research) and is set to become a naughty MTV smash. Tongue in cheek and 60s nice-sleazy, it'll be requested all summer long. Until the next instalment…
The limited pink 7" vinyl will also be available as a free download from his website www.alilove.com
