Lydia Ainsworth Right From Real on Limited Edition LP + Download
Composer/producer/singer Lydia Ainsworth has been secretly writing and recording songs over the past three years from bedrooms and basements between Toronto and Brooklyn. What began as pass-time sketches between composing music for film and multimedia projects has over time revealed an enchanting collection of experimental pop songs with a life of their own.
Blurring the boundaries between indie music, filmic orchestration, and electronic music, Lydia’s debut Right From Real; thrives on haunting melodies and draws inspiration from a wide range of musical sources - Verdi’s Requiem, Ace of Base, Bulgarian Choirs, Bernard Herrmann, Tones on Tail, Art of Noise... to name a few. This sense of unexpected marriages of influence flows throughout much of Lydia’s work which features use of voice sampling and string arrangements woven into a unique minimalist fabric.
“These soundscapes can provide a myriad of emotion, from reassurance to discomfort, anxiety to enthusiasm...it's an unexpected achievement for such a young artist and a testament to the power of music as a purely visceral force.”- Portals
“Like a fever dream of Julia Holter merging with Grimes, Ainsworth's future visions weave neoclassical flourishes and enchanted melody-mangles into cool 80's sound-beds, and it sounds fantastic.” - Dazed
