Camped out in Brooklyn and studying under vocalist Joan La Barbara, Toronto’s Lydia Ainsworth has been steadily cultivating her own sound for the last two and a half years. That journey will soon culminate with the June 10 release of her debut EP, Right from Real Pt 1. The EP—which is available now for streaming—mixes whimsical melodies and Eurythmics style bass-lines to take on a life of it’s own. The distinct sound is further strengthened by Ainsworth’s commanding vocals, which help smoothly guide the ears over the twisting electronics.
Right from Real Pt 1 will be released through Arbutus Records, and it’s not one to pass up. In fact we eagerly relish the potential for a Pt 2.
Stream her debut below and make sure you check out the brilliant “Take Your Face Off.”
