Alis has spent over a decade exploring the intricacies of performance-oriented club music, releasing on labels like Don't Be Afraid and Planet Mu, and becoming a staple in the Berlin and London scenes.

Papercuts is her Astral Plane Recordings debut, comprised of five lush, intimate tracks that are both entirely removed from a dancefloor-context, yet deeply preoccupied with groove and movement.

Honed at her Sunday System nights at London's Rye Wax, Alis' interdisciplinary practice comes to the fore on Papercuts with vocals extending far beyond their linguistical potential into a broader, more textural realm.

Songs like "Status" and "BCC: me" walk the line of sonority and dissonance, nearing the precipice of abstraction without falling into the abyss.

"Papercuts" and "Water" on the other hand offer a more concise narrative vision, proffering a version of hookwriting that fluctuates between meditative and commanding.
