Rising alternative pop artist, Ilton, has released his debut EP, Good & Gone. Incorporating pulsing synths and elusive guitar riffs wrapped in introspective moody vocals, Ilton delivers an evocative EP that takes into account the avenues of self discovery and the struggles of releasing the past.
Good & Gone presents Ilton’s musical journey in exploring who he is not only as an artist, but as an individual. The title track, “Good & Gone” highlights the struggles of breaking away from the past while maintaining one’s own self integrity. The track blends electronic pop rhythms with mesmerizing synths to captivate his listeners and serves as a complex anthem. The second track, “Closer”, defines one urgent desire to reach self success despite feeling any sense of doubts and fear. This track displays uplifting beats and electronic balance to keep the listener engaged throughout. The EP is lined with hypnotic elements and entrances the listener into Ilton’s world.
Ilton and his family immigrated to the U.S. from Greece at a young age to seek opportunities and growth in a new home. Now Brooklyn based Ilton cites inspiration from New York’s local community of artists and finds solace in the support given between creatives outside of the music industry. Ilton started writing and producing for others in 2012, but it wasn’t until 2018 that he joined forces with Unisex Records that Ilton decided to take a step in his own light and create solo pieces. His debut single, “Going Up” began his underground following that allowed him to perform at multiple venues throughout New York City.
With two upcoming music videos on the horizon, be sure to keep an eye out for this blooming artist.
