The world needs more bands that don’t adhere to a particular style or genre; more bands that have something thoughtful to say with each track. The world needs more bands like iLLPHONiCS. I’ve been waiting for these guys to drop a new album since they mentioned that one was in the works when they spoke to SIA last March, and the anticipation was only heightened after the band released the politically and socially charged song, “The Brown Frequency,” in August. Thankfully the wait is finally over. Feast your eyes and ears on the latest LP, “Gone With The Trends,” from iLLPHONiCS. True to form, the album is unique and eclectic—ranging from upbeat hip-hop grooves to soulful RnB serenades—and brings together the crafty lyricism and polished musicality that characterize iLLPHONiCS. Together with the provocative cover art, “Gone With The Trends” forces the listeners to examine who they are and how they interact with the world; it forces listeners to question if they are living the lives they want. Purchase the album on iTunes, Bandcamp or Amazon. Then dig in and enjoy the soulful, groovy stylings of iLLPHONiCS.
