27 Listicle Series: ILUKA


Renowned for her signature retro pop sounds and a voice that at once commands attention with fierce ballads and oozes softness with restrained whispers, ILUKA stands strong as one of Australia’s home-grown revolutionaries. Wearing her heart on her sleeve and owning collective defiance like a badge of honor is her forte.

We caught up with Iluka to get the low down on her fave artists

1. Kira Puru Kira is a total bad ass boss lady and it comes across in her music. What a voice! 

2. Sloan Peterson Dig her sound and her style. Retro but new and original.
3. Jack River Her music takes you to a certain place… a dreamy one filled with nostalgia and longing. It’s a little addictive actually…
4. Wesley Fuller 
His own unique twist on glam rock with a bubblegum edge… Super refreshing to hear his stuff in today’s world. 
5. Stella Donelly Heart-breakingly honest and raw. I first heard ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ through a friend and it brought me to tears…
