"And So To Sleep // There Is No Sound" [double a-side] is the third release from Ailie's forthcoming début album, 'West to the Evening Sun' (Nov 2017).
'And So To Sleep' is a slow-burning, richly-textured song exploring the alternating states of anguish and self-soothing following a painful loss: "The pull of your empty sorrow, it was vacuous, it was gravity to me / The chasm between our bodies, it was ravenous, ..majesty"
'There Is No Sound' is an introspective, urban-celtic dance track confronting the push-pull struggle of letting yourself fall for someone new when cautionary flashes from your past are pulling at your back: "There were night skies, and cinema screens / Smokescreen lovers fake as fake white plasticine skin on skin / My love, I have only just awoken."
Ailie's début album 'West to the Evening Sun' will be released 10 November 2017.
