Sydney rising stars ILUKA…


There are a lot of unanswered questions in this world. Why are there so many wars? Why do people put up with so much shit from their governments? Why aren’t I having more sex etc. But the big one for me today is, WHY aren’t ILUKA famous yet? ‘Yet’ being the operative word. Never have I been so struck with a female vocalist. She blew me away last night at The Standard; so powerful, so unique. Taking over the stage with her quirky, retro band comprised of a drummer, a pianist and an awesome double bass player – ILUKA are destined for stardom. It’s hard not to draw comparisons with Amy Winehouse and Duffy. But they’re not a sound-a-likes. Far from it. Vocalist, Nikki Thorburn has a voice that’s going to be talked about in cities and countries a long way from Sydney. It’s just a matter of time.
