Lydia Ainsworth isn't an easy artist to pin down.
Stunningly evocative alt-pop with a Gothic feel, her songwriting manages to fuse classical settings with future-pop templates to produce something entirely otherworldly.
New album 'Darling Of The Afterglow' is out now on Bella Union, and it could be the Canadian artist's strongest, most imposing moment yet.
Clash is able to premiere a pair of live sessions, recorded in one of Toronto's oldest recording studios.
Even stripped back her songwriting still startles, with the vivid arrangements set against Lydia's incredible voice.
Tune in now.
Lydia Ainsworth's new album 'Darling Of The Afterglow' is out now. Catch her live at the following shows:
30 Brighton The Joker
