Laik Aífe - Go Mad

Laik Aífe - Go Mad
Once tipped $10 at the pub by Tim Rogers because he thought his wife would think she had the spunk, Laik Aífe (lake ee-fa) is a Sydney based singer-songwriter who slings heartfelt soaring tunes with charisma

Child of an incredible teen mum, Laik Aífe duxed her way through music at a prestigious music high school and then went onto the Sydney Conservatorium of Music to study instrumental composition. Though surrounded by incredible talent, it wasn't for her.

So she left, and like all good soul-searching Australians do, moved to London. Originally on a quest to find an old love, she was already over that by the time the day came to leave.

So she proceeded to have a rite of passage early-twenties mental health collapse whilst simultaneously breaking her finger, getting on the wrong bus and ending up in Cork, blog-writing about the sexual perils of modern women and writing songs.

A letter from the Conservatorium of Music accepting her into their Contemporary Music degree eventually sent her on a plane home.

She has performed at Newtown Festival, Biennale of Sydney, and the Sydney Design Festival and she has sung alongside the likes of the late Gurrumul and Christine Anu.

About this track...

Go Mad is composed of only two alternating chords played on electric guitar. It is ethereal yet not easy to get distracted during listening. Laik Aífe's huge and powerful vocals sit weighted on top of the sparse chordal movement. Lyrically, it is about the brink between feeling sane and not.
