There seems to be so many great all female or female led bands slowly carving out their own space in the indie-rock world right now and Ali E, with the recent announce of her forthcoming 10-inch EP, Creatures on June 19, is one of them.

The brainchild of Melbourne based musician Ali Edmonds, Ali E began as a string of solo bedroom recordings, spilling over into more of a collaborative project during the recording of her debut and acclaimed LP Landless in 2012, and more recently, as evident in her forthcoming EP Creatures.

As the solo project turned three piece with Ali E’s latest offering of Creatures, the project continues to feature a handful of respected musicians in their own right, including; Anna Gordon of Mangelwurzel, Bez & Guils of Twin Beasts, Jess Ribeiro, Lucy Rash of Tantrums, and many more. While the current members of Ali E all assist in a slew of other projects – Anto Skene in The Once Overs and Leigh Ewbank in Damn Terran.

Creatures translates a collection of six songs Edmonds has written over the years, into glorious living colour, songs big enough to fill a room or a stadium or the hearts of everyone they touch. Creatures is full of little triumphant moments of hardship; with folk inspired melodies that illustrate small moments of internal, social and political conflict, run through the shredder with some punk leaning instrumentals.
