Following a 20-date tour of the UK including performances at The Great Escape, the indomitable Ainslie Wills has announced headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney this July. Wills also unveils the accompanying visuals for new single Running Second, a stripped back version which highlights her quietly profound lyricism and musical sincerity.
Her first headline shows since 2015, the Melbourne-based artist has earned an enviable reputation for her commanding stage presence. In the past year, she has been invited to support the likes of Leon Bridges, Grouplove, Michael Kiwanuka, Hiatus Kaiyote and Vance Joy.
Taken from her forthcoming EP slated for release later this year, Running Second follows her appearance on #1 Dads’ So Soldier and accompanying triple j Like A Version performance, as well as her 2015 genre-bending Oh The Gold EP, a follow-up to 2013’s Australian Music Prize nominated album You Go Your Way, I’ll Go Mine.
Check out the stripped back version of Running Second below, along with all tour info.
