Alina Simone's debut EP, Prettier in the Dark, showcased a singer-songwriter still trying to find herself. In a presumably coincidental case of serendipity, her protagonists underwent the same sort of self-discovery Simone herself struggles with over the course of this record. Moments where her voice displays a fragile strength are undercut by moments where her singing turns shrill and coarse. Evocative, lyrical images are offset by awkward stabs at meaningful poetics

Alina Simone calls her debut album (following an earlier EP) Placelessness as a reference to her background; the daughter of Ukrainian parents, she was born in the old Soviet Union before the family was forced for political reasons to flee to the West, and she grew up in Massachusetts. More recently, she has lived in Austin, TX, and New York City, and also spent an extended period visiting Siberia
