“Many of my songs are based around hypnotic and repetitive chant like patterns,” Ali explained in an interview on her official website.
“There is something very attractive and mesmerizing to me about the cyclic nature of music and I am often experimenting with ways of expanding an idea that doesn’t necessarily rest on chord changes. If a song can remain on the same chord pattern for its entirety, it must be a very strong chord sequence.”
