Part of the All Ears campaign takeover
Last August Bob Tollast, Olly Puglisi and Tom Fisher emerged to release their debut album ‘Y U’ under ILK. None of them, however, are new faces to the music world. As members of Laurel Collective – alongside Mercury Award-winning producer Charlie Andrew (Alt J) – Puglisi and Tollast are also co-founders of In the Woods festival. Under the name Action Pyramid, Tom Fisher’s work as a sound artist has featured as installations and headphone pieces at the Tate Modern, Tate Britain and Iceland’s Husavik Whale Museum.
Released on Matthew Herbert’s Accidental Records, Y U was described as ‘a joyous mix of rich loop-based psych-pop and sonic exploration, which fuses effortlessly with live instrumentation to create a hazy and colourful soundscape laced with catchy melodies.’ This June they returned to follow it up with their Y U R M X EP. As you will expect from the title, it contains a selection of remixes from Y U. Unexpectedly, it also featured two original tracks. Their musical direction is one of flare and uniqueness, one which we’re excited to continue following. As part of our All Ears takeover, ILK has selected tracks for tired studio ears. From the musical legend Brian Eno to the equally talented Arthur Russell, this is a special collection of songs.
