Eilish Gilligan (A Band Is DJing At My House)

Sun 21 Feb 2021 Early

A Sunday arvo at Small Time dedicated to a patio (dance)floor with weekly guest DJs you may remember from your fave bands—carefully curated by local legend Francesca Gonzales.

Eilish Gilligan is a songwriter and feelings-feeler from Melbourne.

There is an athleticism to Eilish’s performance – you can tell there’s craft there, a certain training and sense of discipline that’s hard to cultivate without years of work. There is power in her vocals, but restraint, too; She knows that an emotional gutting is done better with a whisper than with a yell. Her masterful sense of control brings to mind Bat For Lashes & Kate Bush – like both those iconic pop auteurs, Eilish has a keen sense of how deeply devastating a lone voice and some synths can be.
