ILIRA manages to delight and surprise with her new banger EAT MY BRAIN. Speaking of the song, she says: “EAT MY BRAIN has been a favorite of mine ever since I wrote it.
It’s about having dark and twisted thoughts that figuratively eat up your brain.” The imagery is perfectly aligned throughout the whole song as she fades into the chorus with the words: “You could be the Boddah to my Kurt Cobain,“ referencing Kurt Cobain’s imaginary friend Boddah that he addressed his suicide letter to. The production is handled by London-based hit producer BHAV, NØ SIGNE and Tujamo. There’s a heartfelt darkness surrounding the song, supported by ILIRA’s punchy vocals that tangle with the bouncy chorus. The rising Kosovo-Albanian songstress delivers a perfect dance floor anthem with a monster hook, proving that she knows how to weave raw emotion into an intelligent, clubby track. Dropped just in time for the spooky Halloween season, EAT MY BRAIN serves as a reminder of how deep dance music can be.
