Novo will be performing at SXSW 2019

Novo Amor, a.k.a. singer-songwriter Ali Lacey, pieces together his songs using only the finest and most fragile organic ingredients: lightly plucked acoustic guitars and banjos, tender bits of piano, subtle string sweeps. But most exquisite of all is Lacey’s own falsetto — imagine Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, but more straightforwardly angelic — Novo Amor sends the whole arrangement hurtling heavenward.


The Welsh multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter whose 2018 album “Birthplace” is packed full of cinematic soundscapes undercut with more than a little melancholy.

I’m excited to present my new single and video, ‘Birthplace’.

The song is about recognising a need for change in yourself, and the ambivalence towards acting upon this recognition. Directors Sil Van Der Woerd and Jorik Dozy, along with freediver Michael Board, beautifully encapsulate this in their film – in humanity’s harmful relationship with nature and what outcomes that ambivalence could ultimately bring.

The Birthplace video features our life sized humpback whale of trash. Crafted in a small Balinese village with the locals, it’s made from plastic bags, bottles and other everyday items that get thrown away and end washed up on onshore
