I'lls' – 'Thrice'

Listen to

Whoever’s idea it was to slap a few apostrophes in this band name for some harmless fun should probably be shot. Screwing with syntax may get your band cut through, but it’s highly inconvenient for the rest of us trying to conduct a google search.

Pronounced ‘isles’ not ‘ills’, this new Melb three piece scored a Parklife spot after just one gig. Frontman Simon Lam also plays in The Ocean Party and Kins.

The first thirty seconds of this track fizzles out on the contemplative slow burner, but some gorgeous layers begin to surface soon after. A thoughtful, transient track – multi-tiered parts jump out of the ether and evaporate into the troposphere in a seamless dissolve. That cruisy guitar hook plucked from the void at 2.11 tops it for me.

Willing to get past the grammatical mindfuck, because I’m convinced this is a pretty awesome tune.

Catch I’lls’ at Parklife alongside other locals Gold Fields, Kimbra, Bon Chat Bon Rat, 8 Bit Love and more.
