Track Of The Day: Aislinn Logan – ‘Never Stay Low’

An atmospheric pop gem that gently dismisses the weight of unfair expectations, Belfast-born, London-based artist Aislinn Logan has shared her latest single ‘Never Stay Low’. Mixed by Kristofer Harris (Ghostpoet, Belle and Sebastian, Emmy The Great), the track is a breezy, melodic offering full of lush vocals and shimmering synth sounds.

“There is so much pressure on us to do things a certain way, from such a young age,” Logan explains about the context of her new single. “Intangible pressure, words that slip into conversation, glances, the atmosphere in a room. There’s a fear that if you don’t conform to expectations you’ll be deficient in some way, when the opposite is true. I wanted to create something about rejecting the fallacy of expectations, and the pitfalls if you don’t.” Through her affirming lyricism and tentative vocal delivery, Logan encourages listeners to “Look the other way / If you have you” when it comes to dealing with those who try to cast a shadow over your creative efforts.

Inspired by the sunny melodies of ABBA and Fleetwood Mac, as well as Phil Collins’ percussion (a favourite in Logan’s childhood), ‘Never Stay Low’ is an encouraging nod to those who need a bit of extra support to be their authentic, carefree selves. Listen to the track below.
