Ailsa and the Seahorses
Scottish singer-songwriter Ailsa McEwan is known for her distinct brand of ethereal indie delivered by a warm smoky vocal, described by one fan as “liquid gold”. Performing under the name Ailsa and the Seahorses, her unique sound, both tranquil and haunting, is somewhere between the atmospherics of Mazzy Star and singer-songwriter tradition of Rickie Lee Jones.
Combining a stream of consciousness with narrative, she has created a sound both melancholic and hopeful, but most of all, healing. Following the release of the EP and a summer of festivals and full band performances, Ailsa toured Canada before settling in Berlin, where she is now working on her debut album.
