Ailsa Tully has shared ‘Salt Glaze’ – a tender new single which is out now on Dalliance Recordings (HighSchool, Francis of Delirium, Wilsen). The rising Welsh singer-songwriter has also announced a run of UK headline dates for April.
Written whilst staying at her family home with her partner during last year’s January lockdown, ‘Salt Glaze’ is a beautifully understated song about family, friends, new relationships, and home. It comes with a fittingly home-made video that lovingly captures the nourishment those sources provide.
Speaking about the song, she said: “My Grandma passed away a few years ago and the house remained unchanged, it was like a museum of salt glaze ceramics and abstract art pieces which began to absorb into my creativity. This song is about that space and how my partner and I tried to make it feel like home during that period while also knowing that it wasn’t ours. It’s ultimately a song about acceptance, balance and letting things be”.
Tully’s ‘Holy Isle’ EP, which was released in September, won wide-acclaim (Line of Best Fit, Clash, Gigwise etc) for its inventive blend of cello, bass and field recordings with more traditional singer-songwriter fare. In spite of the many lockdowns, Tully was also able to make an impact on the live circuit last year. She supported Another Sky on their UK tour, played her first London headline at Bermondsey Social Club and appeared at a number of festivals.
With festival bookings already beginning to stack up, a headline tour beginning in March, and even more new music on the horizon, 2022 looks set to be yet another significant year for the emerging Welsh talent.
