Forming a reputation as one of the most exciting young acts on the underground, Essex-born creative powerhouse Bilk is comprised of Sol Abrahams (guitarist and lead singer), Luke Hare (bassist) and Harry Gray (drummer). The collective’s electric chemistry is on full display across their newest offering “Be Someone”. Anthemic guitar chords and power-charging drums set foundation for Sol’s cocky, whip-smart lyricism – elevated by fiery tones and the kind of tongue-in-check charm that will continue the growing attention around the rising outfit. Offering gritty authenticity with melodic punk sounds, Bilk are carving their own lane with a polish and verve that belie their relatively young ages.
Since bursting onto the map with their breakout 2018 record “Spiked” (1.5M streams), Bilk’s muses of Arctic Monkeys, The Jam and Eminem go some way towards explaining their blend of indie, rap and punk; It’s a unique style that’s seen them build to well over 6M streams on Spotify alone, as well cut their teeth with an incendiary debut performance with BBC Introducing at Reading & Leeds Festival this summer.
With their self-titled debut album confirmed for release on 10th February 2023 and critical acclaim coming swiftly across the likes of DORK MAGAZINE, LOUDER THAN WAR, FRED PERRY BBC R1, BBC R6 and RADIO X, Sol Abrahams’ innovative delivery and Bilk’s natural ability to distil the new generation of British youth culture make them a serious new name in the landscape.
