LISTEN: I’lls ‘Plans Only Drawn’
The music of I’LLS is somewhat akin to placing an academic genius in a primary school art and craft class. They manage to create congruence between futuristic values and classically strong ideas, while each songs complexity disappears into the effortlessly melodic layers.
‘Plans Only Drawn’ is the first single taken from the bands upcoming EP, titled ‘A Warm Reception’ which will be released on May 21. The single is ethereal and beautiful, showcasing the bands aptitude for writing melody and interesting compositions.
It follows on from 2011’s self-released EP titled, ‘Thread’. After its release the band were handpicked to perform at Melbourne’s Parklife Festival, having played only one show prior. Since then the band have been selected to support international and local luminaries, including: XXYYXX, Chet Faker, Flume, Oliver Tank, Collarbones, Opossom and PVT.
I’lls second EP ‘A Warm Reception’ will be released through Yes Please on May 21. In Yes Please tradition it will be available as a ‘name your price’ download from Bandcamp, plus all decent digital outlets.
