Bio

Fresh from winning triple J Unearthed’s comp to support The Rubens on their recent national tour, Sydney artist ILUKA returns with Closer To You, the brand new single featuring a compelling new twist to her sound.

Produced by The Preatures’ Jack Moffit and reinforced by her tight-knit band, Closer To You which is released on March 15th, suggests an edgier path to be explored by the talented young artist. While all the hallmarks of her classic pop style and unmistakable voice remain, this new single suggests Iluka’s song craft has matured and reflects her immersion into a world of innovative sounds, new experiences and fresh ideas.

A true traveller at heart, Iluka has forged an identity collected via experiences in far flung climes, a highlight that adds depth to her work as a song writer. After standout festival and guest spots with the likes of Alex Lahey and Lime Cordiale on their ‘Dirt Cheap’ tour, the stage is now set for the next phase of Iluka’s trajectory.

To celebrate the release of Closer To You, Iluka and her band will play a special show in Sydney on March 21 as a part of Cobra Club's 'Rooftop Series' on the rooftop of the King Cross Hotel, which will also serve to preview some of the exciting new material she has been working on in the studio.

For a song about falling apart - it's sure got a shimmering, euphoric build.

Until the rest of the world steps up and realises how wonderful ILUKA is I guess we'll just have to centralise the ILUKA fanclub HQ to this corner of the office. She only writes good songs.

It's the lyrics, the production ILUKA's voice, all of it, that makes this song feel so warm and inviting. Love this.
