IMILIA

IMILIA
By Melvin Benson 

For those born in the 90’s, bands like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit really defined our early lives in High School (or so we thought.) Imilia is a Miami native band which really grabs ahold of LP’s and LB’s sound, scripting it a little differently to bring something fresh to a genre that seems all but forgotten.

Johnytiger and Charlie comprise the members of Imilia, constructing the harsh meld of electronic and metal to send you a powerful grime you didn’t know you needed. Their most listened to track, Mendacity, gives us a taste of what to expect from these young artists. What started as a haunting tone with a looming energy, finally culminates into an explosive chorus where guitar and computer really take the stage.

Their most recent release, STEREO, takes a break from their usual loud drive. Its emphasis on vocals isn’t lost either, as it hosts what I believe to be their best lyrics so far. With each track getting exponentially better for this artist, I can’t help but wonder what’s in store for them in the future!

In fact, Imilia is in the process of finishing up a mixtape (You heard it right, a rock band is working on a mixtape!) Johnytiger says it’s coming along wonderfully, and he hopes fans are eagerly watching their feeds for updates on tracks. Who knows, maybe they’ll drop a track or two before hand?

Below is the music video for their track Favorite//Disease, an excellent track with a music video fitting for an obscure genre.
