We can’t describe the magical feeling we get when we listen to Iliona’s impeccable songs because she’s really one of a kind. The Brussels-based singer debuted in 2020 and made a lasting impression on the whole scene. “When I look back to a year ago, it feels like it’s already three years ago because so many amazing things happened this year.”
Queen of ‘tristesse’
The utterly beautiful singer is for a lot of people the big revelation of 2021 and is bringing a new twist to the French chanson with the innovative use of her voice. While she wasn’t able to sing her new songs on stage yet, she already knows how she wants to present herself. “A performance can be super powerful if you let a song speak to people. You don’t even need makeup or beautiful gowns,” she says.
Iliona loves to take risks in her music and tries to offer us a new perspective on her sound with every release. In her most recent release “Reste”, the singer sings about the distance between people, but we’re sure she’ll unite music lovers from all over the globe with her debut EP tristesse, which is coming out on 5 February.
