Now Playing: Eilish Gilligan – ‘S.M.F.Y.’

Monday, February 12, 2018

Eilish Gilligan’s latest release and arguably her best, 'S.M.F.Y.', is an intelligently crafted track, exciting and playful in its premise but hard-working in its own right.

The thumping house beat and electronic production of the track mixed with Gilligan’s popping vocals create a musical taste profile that is both individual and pleasing to the ears. The track easily allows one to enjoy a dance to the song while also experiencing the varied emotions that Gilligan expresses through her melodious vocals and heartfelt lyrics.

'S.M.F.Y.' takes the listener on a journey and before you know it, it has sadly finished. Along the way, you are whisked into a multitude of feelings, from happiness; through the constant bop of the electronic elements of the song to melancholy.

Gilligan has perfectly balanced these two often conflicting musical worlds, avoiding placing vocals above the backing effects or vice versa, creating a recording that is harmonious in its construction, yet still entertains. Beyond her years, the Melbourne-raised producer and vocalist has again put together a track that people will love to listen and dance to.
