Bilk (https://www.facebook.com/bilkbandpage) are a fresh faced indie punk trio from Essex who are on very much of an upward trajectory. Lining up with Sol Abrahams (vocals/guitar), Luke Hare (bass) & Harry Gray (drums), they play a similar sort of music to south London trio Play Dead, maybe Manchester's finest Aerial Salad ae a decent comparison too. I've played them on the show a few times but with the upcoming release of their debut album it's a good time to mention them on here.
I was going to feature their recently released Be Someone video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKfguwYVzgo) but as they unveiled another new song yesterday I'll go with that one instead.
The album will feature both tracks (plus another song that came out as a single earlier this year and has been chosen by a listener of the show (who said about it "I love the fact they’re a bunch of young lads. I’ve got a 21 year old and it just reminds me of him") to feature in the listener's favourite songs of 2022 show https://gpr.mixlr.com/events/1784015). Titled Bilk, the album will be out on February 10th and you can pre order it here : https://bilkband.co.uk/collections/frontpage
A little more restrained than most of their material, this is called Just Don't Work For Me...
