Any horror fan will agree that the Hills Have Eyes is a little of a misleading title for a sweetly resonant Indie Folk track. But once you get over that, Jack Biilmann’s latest single unfolds like an absolute dream. He packs plenty of momentum into the acoustic melody which goes beyond your average genre-conforming Indie track with Biilmann’s tendency to throw in everything from Dub to Blues in to create a soundscape that is as fresh and organic as it comes. I don’t mean to make him sound like food produce, but damn, the Australian guitarist and singer songwriter has such command over his eccentric melodies that it’s hard not to find yourself in awe of his prodigal approach to sound.
Through his lyrics and pitch perfect vocal offerings it’s palpable that Jack Billmann is an artist that throws his passion into the orchestration of the music, for the end result to be dripping with resonance.
