There is a stretch of road that runs through the Adirondack national park, just a few miles of houses and barns and truck stops and trees, that makes up Woodgate, New York. But just off from this road is a rough track that leads down to a lake, and a beach, and a cluster of old buildings. “And that’s where I spent my summer,” says Ali Lacey, better known as Novo Amor. “On a really deep lake with a dock surrounded by tall evergreens.”

 

The name Novo Amor means ‘new love’, and it’s really cheesy in hindsight, but it reflects exactly why I started the project - because I was lost and I needed to find a new love, and I just put it all into making music.”

 

His early efforts he dismisses as painfully emo, but in 2013 he volunteered to write the score for a friend’s feature film. “I did it as a favour,” he says, “just because I want to be involved.” For the climactic scene of the film he wrote a song he called ‘From Gold’, conjured unexpectedly late one night when he returned from his shift at the ice cream parlour. “What I liked about it was that the whole song was one crescendo,” he explains. “It’s a building piece, but it had delicate subtleties on the guitar and vocals which bring a bit more of an emotional element to it. Though it’s just four chords repeated over again for three and a half minutes, it’s the simplest thing, and simplicity is key sometimes.”

‘From Gold’ seemed to unlock something in Lacey, and he began writing a collection of songs he would release as the ‘Woodgate EP’ the following year — songs inspired by his time by the lake in upstate New York, that were tender and honest and lovestruck.

    Alternative Folk

    Hailing from deep in the Welsh mountains, Novo Amor is Welsh multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Ali Lacey. His emotive vocals and the sounds he uses, often formed through sonic experimentation, make for fantastically atmospheric songs that are both moving and striking.

    Lacey dismissed his early musical efforts as painfully emo, but in 2013 he volunteered to write the score for a friend’s feature film. For the climactic scene he wrote a song he called From Gold, conjured unexpectedly late one night. “What I liked about it was that the whole song was one crescendo,” he explains. “It’s a building piece, but it had delicate subtleties on the guitar and vocals which bring a bit more of an emotional element to it. Though it’s just four chords repeated over again for three and a half minutes, it’s the simplest thing, and simplicity is key sometimes.”

    ‘From Gold’ seemed to unlock something in Lacey, and he began writing a collection of songs he would release as the EP 'Woodgate, NY' the following year. It was also around this time he met songwriter and producer Ed Tullett with whom he forged an immediate bond. Out of that friendship grew a musical collaboration, with first single ‘Faux' released in 2014, followed by ‘Alps'. They themselves were followed by Lacey’s second solo EP, 'Bathing Beach’ in May 2017 via AllPoints. In November 2017 he released a full-length collaborative album with Ed Tullett, Heiress. His debut album will arrive in the Autumn of 2018.
