Last night I got to see Ali Love perform live at an unusual little pop club night in Camden called Smash & Grab and let's just say I was way impressed. Singing new songs from his album "Love Harder" - Ali Love delivered a stomping set of electro-pop amazingness centered around his new single "Smoke & Mirrors" which is out on July 26th.
Complete with Tron styled backup singers Ali Love proved to me last night that he is one to watch out for. Having been won over by a CD sampler of his back in March, I'm convinced that his new album "Love Harder" is the best new album that Prince has yet to make. In fact, Ali Love sortea sounds like Prince straight out of the 80's – minus the buttless trousers and complete weirdness he exudes today.
The best part of the show for me? Getting to sing along and go crazy to one of MY TRACKS OF THE YEAR – "Done The Dirty". That track is AMAZING. It's going to end up in my Top 10 songs of 2010 no doubt.
"Love Harder" by Ali Love is released on August 2nd and you can read our EQ interview with the man himself right here.
