Introducing Video of the Week from Wales Arts Review. We’ll be showcasing some of the best new art in Wales with a new video shared every week. From music to drama and everything in between, videos will not be limited by medium. Today we take a look at ‘Parasite’ from Ailsa Tully.
This week we take a look at the latest single from Welsh singer-songwriter Ailsa Tully. ‘Parasite’ marks a slight change in direction for Tully – with a darker, and more psychedelic sound than her previous, more mellow single ‘drive’.
Tully has described her experience of sexism and the way it manifests within the music industry as inspiration for the track, saying: “‘Parasite’ is a confrontational song written for a controlling and manipulative person. It explores the insidious manner in which sexism takes form, particularly within the inner workings of the industry.”
‘Parasite’ is released via Dalliance Recordings, a label known for representing artists dancing the line of folk and electronic music (with the likes of Wilsen and Gia Margaret also part of the Dalliance family). Though Tully is yet to release her first album, she’s already made waves in the industry with BBC’s Adam Walton describing her sound as “Inexplicable transcendental excellence”.

‘Parasite’ is available to stream on Spotify now.
