They Died for Beauty
CD, インポート, 2004/2/23
Ilya from Bristol, England is a trio analogous to John Barry soundtracks, David Axelrod & smoky jazz clubs. What's most surprising about this fresh outfit is the fact that they sound every bit as good as the comparisons. Mixing in funk & soul, to form something way beyond the lazy tag of trip hop, Ilya stir up a sensation that is warm, sensual & most of all, seductive. Nine tracks, including the single, 'Bellissimo' as featured on the Revlon commercial. Limited edition digipak. Copy Controlled. Virgin. 2003.
Perfect arrangements, nostalgic samples, quality production and being almost completely different from anything you will hear in the mainstream, makes this a five star purchase.
