SONG PICK: Illyin Pipes – Waking Up (Video)
As we here in the northern hemisphere prepare to hand over summer to the southern part of the planet, here is a fantastic audiovisual experience by Toronto band Illyin Pipes to reminisce the warmer months of the year: Soothing synth lines, dreamy vocals and singer Jill Harris dancing through HD quality imagery of lush landscapes in England evoke feelings of carefreeness with undercurrents of melancholy. Jill explains:
I was struggling with a few things while trying to maintain an illusion of positivity and balance. The dichotomy of stability and disorder is present in ‘Waking Up’ as well as the remainder of the EP’s songs, even if that wasn’t intentional when we wrote them.
Illyin Pipes are preparing an EP to be release later this year.
