Listen: I’lls - Can I Go With You To Go Back To My Country EP
The Melbourne trio’s new EP is scary good.
I’lls really know how to nail it. After success with their two-track Fifty-Phiphti/Asakusa release in 2014 and recent single releases Let Me Have Just One and the uplifting Keep, the Melbourne ex-jazz trio have finally released their EP, Can I Go With You To Go Back To My Country, and it is absolutely stunning. Out via Solitaire Recordings, this EP is their most adventurous work yet, strongly influenced by what the band call “a generation of producers who blurred the lines between dance music and art”. As well as featuring the two singles, the record has four other new tracks which continue to show I’lls late-90s influences and their pursuit of music that has what they call ‘a brain and a heart’.
Fans of the likes of Radiohead and Sigur Ros will appreciate the serene Thom Yorke-esque vocals, hypnotic beats and the atmospheric synthscape. There are elements of electronic minimalism that, matched with superb production quality and a hint of underlying jazz influences, allow this record to be very unique and a very, very good listen.
