Alessi’s Ark released a new video for the charming downtempo “Veins Are Blue”, a willowy, dreamy track off the British band’s latest release, “The Still Life”, their third album. It’s a romantically-inclined song about wanting to move on in a relationship, and the limitlessness of having an irrepressible nature: “You did what you had to do / You thought you’d choose / I’ll go along with you / I have nothing to lose / But you can’t hold me down / I stayed up talking to a man I barely knew / Made me feel special / Something you rarely do / Soft smoke out the window / Chase a smell on the neck / And his veins are blue.” You can follow Alessi Laurent-Marke and her band at facebook and twitter. You can purchase the record via Bella Union. Note: Photo is a screen capture from the video. — David D. Robbins Jr.
