Feature: The Anatomy of 'Dark Spell' with Ainsley Farrell

Friday, August 30, 2019

Before her upcoming appearance at BIGSOUND, Sydney-based and American-born artist Ainsley Farrell has released a slice of magic with her latest single 'Dark Spell'. Along with sharing the single, she's also released the track's new music video, which was filmed by her partner Michael Burley. Learn more about 'Dark Spell' below.

I wrote ‘Dark Spell'… in my old bedroom at my parent’s house in California.

The story behind ‘Dark Spell' is… a heartbreak and loss of self-worth.

My favourite lyric is… “Midnight you burnt out my tail light, fading slow, loving goes.”  “Held my breath while you covered up this stench, I’m your call collect.” “You know I’d never leave you with a heartache so break me and tell me what hurts”

It was made… It was written while I was back in the states last year and recorded this year in Copacabana, NSW with Alex O’Gorman, Tom Stephens, and Arne Utiger.

My main inspiration was… an emergence of an old source of heartbreak.

It sounds best when… played underwater to a pod of narwhals.
