Ireland’s ‘Pop Goth’ is back with her new single, ‘The Disaster Song’.
The Wicklow singer’s signature bubble-gum pop sound has seen support from national radio stations like TODAY FM, international blogs like Digital Tour Bus and magazines like Hot Press (who titled AILSHA as one of the country’s ‘Most Promising Artists’).
Her wry and playful style has seen her perform this year at The Workman’s Club, Viva Palooza, The Sound House and more, with a line-up of tour dates for the rest of October across the country (Details here).
AILSHA’s singles have received airplay on national radio stations including TODAY FM, where she has been described as having ‘huge potential to be Ireland’s next big popstar’ by Fergal D’Arcy (All Irish). In comparison to previous releases, her new single is delivered with a more raw but confident vocal performance that exudes the playfulness. In the artist’s own words-
‘”While ’The Disaster Song” is about leaving a rather disastrous relationship, it’s also about being able to laugh at all the things that went wrong. I produced the song in a 1960s-style and mixed it with my video game music influences for a fun song that I hope people can relate to, but also laugh along with. I’m a believer in not taking life too seriously and this song is a testament to that.”
AILSHA worked as a professional makeup artist for years while gigging around Dublin. She studied Music Production for Games at Griffith/Pulse College and in 2021 she fulfilled her childhood dream of being a composer for video games. She loves using her social media to inspire aspiring artists and producers to follow their dreams.
‘The Disaster Song’ will be released on all mainstream streaming platforms on Friday 29th October 2021.
