Barely in their mid-twenties, British multi-instrumentalists, songwriters, producers and singers Ali Lacey –aka Novo Amor
– and Ed Tullett
had already long started their solo projects when they realised that their approach to music was not only compatible, but also the source of beautifully written, impeccably arranged, uplifting songs. In 2014 they released Faux
, a breath-taking first single that has more than 3 million plays on Spotify and has been featured in a bunch of TV series. But that’s not the end of it; they have since carried on writing stunning songs like Alps
, which –as Ali puts it– is about “the fear of self-destruction and how we let ourselves kill what we set out to love.” Besides, Ed has recently joined Novo Amor’s band in their 2016 UK tour – which, by the way, sold out in most of the venues. We talk with them about the experience of working together despite living in different cities, ongoing and future projects, and touring.
