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.

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

it kicks right when you want it to and if you aren't siding with eilish by the end of the song then you aren't right. in a world where a lot of stuff is very similar or imitations of something else, eilish has a lane to herself.

i had to stop this and do something at 1 minute so i restarted. then at 2 mins someone came over so i started it again. i've basically shuttle run listened to this one and it's affected me deeply each time.
