Iluka releases summery single ‘Blue Jean Baby’, announces EP ‘Blue My Soul’

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 17, 2016 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

ILUKA

NEW SINGLE BLUE JEAN BABY OUT TOMORROW

ANNOUNCES IMPENDING EP BLUE MY SOUL

 

After making waves with her singles ‘Paper Doll‘ and ‘12th Of July‘, wild-at-heart globetrotter ILUKA releases her anthemic folk-pop single ‘Blue Jean Baby’, and today announces the impending release of her EP Blue My Soul on Friday February 17.

‘BLUE JEAN BABY’

(SINGLE)

OUT FRI NOV 18

Youthful and wistful, ‘Blue Jean Baby’ aspires to a life beyond a small-town existence. Alternating between debonair bouyancy and vivacious urgency, the track sees ILUKA finding release in personal freedom and the open road. Produced by Jean-Paul Fung (Jinja Safari, Bluejuice, Last Dinosaurs), ‘Blue Jean Baby’ wears its heart stitched proudly to its sleeve, liberated by a future of unbridled wayfaring.

It’s only natural that this notion of emancipation through escape is the very heart of LUKA’s upcoming EP Blue My Soul. The songs it houses are borderless, having seeded in a Buddhist Monastery in South East Asia, sprouted in India, and then finally blossomed in the expansive plains of America like rare desert flowers. Each has its own purpose in absolution, conjuring vivid landscapes and beckoning to the bohemian nomad soul that exists within us all. Blue My Soul is almost entirely self-produced and was tracked to tape as a live band at Sydney’s Linear Recording Studios. The result is a release that is simultaneously personal and empathetic in its rawness, joie de vivre and an “it’s the journey, not the destination” philosophy.

(EP)

OUT FRI FEB 17

A spirited overachiever from the start, ILUKA’s previous single ‘Paper Doll’ received airplay on triple j. She’s no stranger to the stage, either – flocked by her live band, ILUKA has opened for respected international artists such as Kitty, Daisy & Lewis (UK), Bahamas (Can), and Allen Stone (US). As 2016 comes to a close, ILUKA looks poised and ready to seize the summer with her bright enthusiasm and music made for long, carefree, sweltering days.
