Ilia’s songs are delicious melodic vignettes, compelling, ethereal and draped in a late 60’s brit-pop cinematic atmosphere, her prosey lyrics are both poignant and ponderous. But there are humorous splashes aplenty as Ilia navigates from innocence to astute observation in her debut. Part Jane Siberry, Part Petula Clark, part Sarah Harmer. A joyful listen.
