Right From Real

Newcomer Lydia Ainsworth wasn’t originally planning on writing pop tunes, but you’d never know it when listening to Right From Real. This debut full-length, released first as separate EPs, displays the work of a remarkably clever and progressive songwriter who’s now receiving favourable comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush, Bjork, and Arbutus labelmate Grimes. A self-taught cellist from the age of 10, Ainsworth went on to study film scoring at McGill University and NYU, before her forays in crafting experimental electro-pop. The results of which are impressive – Right From Real is an all-around dramatic and lush-sounding affair, equal parts orchestral and futuristic. A mesmerizing introduction that’s worth gushing over.

Hear the material live at M Pour Montreal on November 19 at La Sala Rossa. Details here
