Bio

Eilish Gilligan is a songwriter and feelings-feeler from Melbourne.

There is an athleticism to Eilish’s performance – you can tell there’s craft there, a certain training and sense of discipline that’s hard to cultivate without years of work. There is power in her vocals, but restraint, too; She knows that an emotional gutting is done better with a whisper than with a yell. Her masterful sense of control brings to mind Bat For Lashes & Kate Bush – like both those iconic pop auteurs, Eilish has a keen sense of how deeply devastating a lone voice and some synths can be.

Eilish has this habit of making records that sound initially great but somehow get better with time? Weird, I know. I believe it has something to do with her vocal melodies, but look, I'm not a doctor.

Simmering emotion on this track. It allows Eilish's voice to rise ever higher and take you with it on its ascent.
