Featuring two former members of The Laurel Collective – Bob Tollast and Olly Puglisi – with Tom Fisher – aka Action Pyramid – along for the ride too, Ilk released their debut single, ‘Y U’, last month.

A precursor to their debut album of the same name – due out via Matthew Herbert’s Accidental Records on 11 Aug – it is now joined by another song, ‘Somer’.

The band began creating experimental music using found sounds several years ago, and over time gravitated to something less abstract. Puglisi explains: “We wanted to make something more accessible and intrinsically human, so we began weaving Bob’s vocals into more traditional pop song structures”.

The band will play an album launch show at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington on 16 Aug. They also have a number of other dates lined up over the summer.
