WATCH: Ailsa Tully - 'Drive'

Time for another Stay Loose gem, arriving on Dalliance Recordings (making an equally brilliant name for themselves with the likes of Gia Margaret, Wilsen and Francis of Delirium on their roster) - here's Ailsa Tully. After the weekend's announcement (you know the one) soothing music is where it's at currently, right? This fits the bill, that's for sure. Bringing to the fore her experience of singing in a church choir in Wales, Ailsa begins each track on the bass guitar, blending that dreamy vocal in to make something really lovely. Even better, there's another new track arriving early next year. 

Talking on this track in particular, she explains that it "is about searching to free yourself from the mundanity of everyday life. It was inspired by a time when my brain was festering in a boring job. I needed an escape." The video reflects this, a really simple POV shot from a windscreen, journeying out of the city and into the countryside. Having not left my hometown in what feels like forever (and not being able to drive) even watching the video feels like a lovely bit of escapism. Much needed!
