Fast-forward to the end of 2017 and ILUKA is ready to kick off another year of interminable success. Her latest offering, ‘Sympathy’, is a nod to recent outcries within society and a gentle push for today’s generation to wake up, take a stand and raise their voices. She draws musical influence from Motown’s rhythmic grooves, while maintaining her intrinsic retro pop vibes, swirling synths and lyrical potency.
The new EP Ritual focuses on the here and now, with each song paying homage to her great loves and burning visions of an old soul desperately present. It’s her most honest body of work to date - portraying empowerment, liberation and the desire to fight for something bigger, something more. With live shows in the works and the release of Ritual in April 2018, ILUKA is both an artist of conviction and determination. And she’s only just getting started.
