Ilya release their strikingly beautiful single ‘Bellissimo’ February 9th on Virgin Records. This evocative composition is taken from their eagerly anticipated debut album ‘They Died For Beauty’ released February 23rd.
‘Bellissimo’ is written and produced by Ilya’s three Bristol based members: vocalist Joanna Swan, writer Nick Pullin and producer Dan Brown. Together they form an arresting triumvirate that mix an elegant fusion of styles and sounds with mesmerising results.
Read more… The single will be released on an enhanced CD featuring a latin tinged
Ashley Beedle mix, an Ilya mix and the video. A 12″ will also be released.
Dan Brown describes their sound as “Nina Simone meets Curtis Mayfield with a touch of Air on a windy night”.
If ‘Bellissimo’ sounds familiar it may well be because it’s the soundbed for the latest Cacharel perfume ‘Amor Amor’ TV ad, being aired over the next two months. The single is already receiving excellent specialist airplay with the Ashley Beedle mix.
All One Surface’s debut album will be released on February 9th to the hungry public. However, the bargain hunters among you will be pleased to know that people on the mailing list in the new year will have the chance to get their hands on the album before release and for a nice cheap price!
