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.

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.

Whenever I've seen Eilish perform live this has been a real show-stopper moment in her set. I can't get over how perfectly vulnerable she sounds, drawing you in with such resonant emotion.

This is throwing me back to All The Time era Eilish which was a very sound. You've grown and changed and found your energy since but that was a stripped raw version of yourself that's evidently still there and still beautiful.
