Wildcard (week 9):
ili – It’s Giving…

Born and raised in Glasgow, ili is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and a fully independent artist. She started her career in a band called Loud N Proud at the age of nine and started writing her own songs at thirteen. She first grabbed the spotlights when she participated in ‘The X Factor’ 2016 under her own name Emily Middlemas.

In 2019, she began using her stage name ili and independently released her debut EP Changes. Her brand-new EP It’s Giving… is only her second collection of songs. Each of the tracks describes a chapter of her personal road to self-discovery. As such, they invite listeners to embark on their own journey of introspection and enlightenment through music.

The EP contains six tracks, produced by her fiancé Ryan Lawrie (known professionally as Koolkid). Four of them were released as singles in 2022 and 2023, the remaining two are brand-new: Babe Me Up and the title track. The latter is her new single. Although it sounds light-hearted, It’s Giving… sees ili contemplating on a past relationship. A great modern pop song, both musically and lyrically, that’ll resonate with its listeners.

It’s Giving… by ili is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. This implies that it will be prominently displayed at the top of the blog for an entire week.
