Blessed with a heart-breaking voice and a penchant for bold rhythms, Melbourne singer-songwriter Ainslie Wills is a rare talent.
It’s hard to compare her to other artists (Feist? Beth Orton?), or even settle her into a genre (Indie blues? Dark pop?). Her voice soars with ease, her melodies are portentous, her rhythms are propulsive, and the overall atmosphere is spell-binding.
After releasing single ‘Wide Load’ and her knockout new single ‘Fighting Kind’, we ask her how she assembles these songs, whether studying music has given her a leg-up, the accidental theme of her impending album You Go Your Way And I’ll Go Mine, her partner in crime Lawrence Folvig, and more.
And make sure you watch her killer performance of three songs acoustically in the studios, here.
