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.

Ok but this is just beautiful isn't. Eilish has always had that voice and those songs but they're sounding more modern and moving every time.

everything you create is so dynamic and deliberate. you consider the grand, sweeping big picture as carefully as you create nanoscopic, delicate moments to pause on.

Big Eilish fan and one thing about her tracks is you can always recognise her signature vocal - which is why this is such a dramatic turn to go more subdued and obscured with it on 'Flesh'! This track is chilly with bruised emotion but I still feel warm like I'm cloaked inside Eilish's careful performance.
