New Music: Ilonalowe – Someday

Someday is the delicate new storytelling folk track from London-based singer songwriter Ilonalowe.

By Graeme Smith

Ilonalowe is an artist I first discovered back in May this year through her emotive track Once AgainSomeday has a similar sense of emotion but what really captured me about it was its richly atmospheric, layered instrumentals (including ambient sounds).

There is a real traditional folk feel to the vocals and poetic lyrics that is also very compelling. Through its imagery, Ilonalowe attempts to process feelings, something she confesses to not doing very well. There is a nautical link between the ambient beach noises and ‘feeling at sea’.
