AWIL 104 - Ailm

 Cinematic Celtic folk by Ailm on this A World In London! Click:

Five-piece group Ailm got together only a few months ago, yet are already one of the most impressive bands in the vanguard of new wave folk music coming out of the UK. Featuring the versatile & superb voice of Slovak Londoner, Lori Secanska, who also sings with klezmer outfit Oysland, and mesmerising songs composed by skilled multi-instrumentalist Alex Paton, Ailm’s line-up is a perfect counterpoint to Brexit, with Italian- born Matteo Riccordo on percussion, classically trained cellist Clarissa Carlyon, and guitar virtuoso Richard Collins completing the line-up. Ailm champion ‘that’ Celtic romance sound we kind of know but want to explore more, adding epic & dramatic overtones to their material, layered in fantasy & folklore. Their first and excellent album, also named Ailm, is out just now on digital release, and you can hear an exclusive preview of it right here on this AWIL!
