Bilk – in session for John Kennedy – Radio X, London – April 2, 2022 – Radio X
Bilk to end the week/start a new one. Primarily an acoustic session done for the John Kennedy Program on Radio X, this past Saturday (April 2nd). Starting with the commercial release of their latest single, and then settling in for the acoustic session for the rest of it. The full-on band gives you an idea what you’re in for when you finally see them (if they arrive in the States anytime soon).
BILK are three musicians creating a unique angsty blend of indie, rap and punk from the suburbs of Essex, UK. The brainchild of frontman Sol Abrahams, completed by the bassist Luke Hare and drummer Harry Gray- their honest social commentary is as real as it gets, reflecting on the highs and lows of British youth culture today. Their first four tracks released across 2018 were championed by John Kennedy at Radio X, BBC, Introducing, 6Music and Amazing Radio where both debut tracks reached number 1 on the Amazing Chart. Sol’s rowdy curt delivery oozes swag and rebellion, truly a voice for an oppressed generation trying to find their place in a tiring new world order. As a consequence, their fresh new sound and popular lyrical content have impressed indie tastemakers such as DORK, The Blue Walrus and a host of international blogs. Catch them live on a tour across the UK and also as they begin to play their first overseas shows later this year.
