The Sunflower Lounge Presents Another Sky + Special Guests
Another Sky are creating ambient music for people with anxiety and insomnia.
This week, each member of the London-based quarter has recorded a 10-minute improvised “lullaby session”; a soothing instrumental piece designed to help people’s minds drift away from the current reality.
Frontwoman, Catrin Vincent, says “Right now, we all deserve a break. Some of us suffer with insomnia and ambient music really helps us switch off, so we thought we’d make some for our fans in case it helps.”
London based singer-songwriter Ailsa Tully has created an ethereal world rooted in folk, tinged with indie, and grounded by lofi field recordings. Ailsa’s vocals are tender yet determined, central to the haunting soundscape she has crafted. Her lyrics are unflinchingly honest, rousing and poetic as she explores themes such as her own mental health and her experiences as a woman. Accompanied by an all-female band, Ailsa Tully sways between intense emotive harmonies, driving rhythms and modal melodies. Playing the bass in a distinctive and unique way to accompany her voice, she is elevating it from its conventional role and exploring its unknown potential.
