Ailie Releases New Single ‘Beat of Your Heart’

Following the release of ‘West to the Evening Sun’, the title track from her forthcoming début album, Ailie announces a new single, ‘Beat of Your Heart’, for release today, Wednesday 26th April.

Named as one of Nialler9’s New Irish Songs of the Week, ‘Beat of Your Heart’ “moves between bright handclap pop, urgent guitars, and piano led passages” (Niall Byrne, Irish Times).

The opening line “There was a silence on the stillness of the sea beneath a sad lament” returns again and again in the song, increasingly destabilising its otherwise regular rhythms, in a way that is described as reflecting “the auditory disturbances occurring during migraine episodes“.

Ailie’s début album, ‘West to the Evening Sun’ is due for release summer 2017.

So new, so fresh, and so good” (Carl Corcoran, The Blue of the Night, RTE Lyric fm)

A taster from the Leitrim singer-songwriter’s forthcoming debut album shows a craftswoman who knows the right measure of guile and atmospherics which a soundscape of this majesty requires.” (Jim Carroll, Irish Times)
