Alanna McArdle is one busy girl.

Having just finished a trio of support slots with CitR pals Youth Lagoon under the A Grave With No Name guise, she’s also found time to announce not one, but two new releases, with her solo project Ides, and as part of Joanna Gruesome. Whereas some musicians seem to start new projects for the hell of it, there’s a genuine feeling that Alanna brings something entirely unique to each of her three current outfits. Her new track, Prisms, released under the Ides moniker, is a touching, perfectly written acoustic number, relying solely upon McArdle’s lyrical proficiency and stunning vocals. Check out Prisms below.
