Emerging out of the vibrant San Diego underground, ILYA creates languishing and soothing musical textures that tap into the subconscious stream of thought. ILYA's full-length debut for Second Nature Recordings conveys a provocative blend of sounds and styles that are quiet and haunting one moment, a wall of sound and explosive percussion the next. Combining elements of PORTISHEAD, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION and MASSIVE ATTACK, with caressing vocals reminiscent both of BJÖRK's breathlessness and FIONA APPLE's poetic beauty, resulting in an elegant tapestry of trip-hop, atmospheric rock, electronica, and ambient jazz.
