ILA or Isobel Livermore Atkinson released her first single, “Never Be Me”, in Lockdown 2020 as seen releasing “Layna” with her first music video. Now coming out with “Thunderclouds”, ILA is showing off her vocal and songwriting ability with this heart-melting ballad about lost love.
Her song revolves around the guilt and mistrust you put on someone you are intertwined with. Her sad medley with a heated twist of realization. Proudly produced by Beardfire Music once again makes this a sad but comforting song of “it will be okay.”
ILA has been compared to Taylor Swift, Adele, Florence, and the machine and many more for her strong vocals to bring goosebumps to anyone. You feel yourself singing a swaying with this bitter love song without ever knowing.
After the fantastic feedback from Layna from Classics hits FM, Sean Coyle on Dublin South FM, Dublin City, all-around Ireland, and the UK. Countless blogs and appearances in Clouzine Magazine, the earworm show and many more.
Layna was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Beardfire Studio, Dublin, by veteran producer David Virgin and his sons Rohan and Al. In their collective six decades in music, they’ve worked in the studio or on stage with the likes of Nick Cave, INXS, Cat Power, Billy Bragg, Leslie Dowdall and John Cooper Clark. Recent productions include All the Queens Horses (International Songwriting Competition Winners), Patricia Lalor (now with Atlantic Records) and alt-pop icon RUNAH.
“Thunderclouds” is out on the 3rd of October 2022 on all major platforms
