Pillars ~ Attacker

Pillars Artist Image!

Who is Pillars?   A uniquely beguiling vocal-based producer from West London.

My first impression of “Attacker” :  A stripped down and unembellished song with a lot of dark edges.

My take :  I usually have trouble staying awake when I listen to tracks this slow but “Attacker” finds a way to keep my attention on the edge of my seat.  As the song tiptoes along, the emotion and the energy nicely builds as vocal samples and clapping loops transform into one of the most muted chaotic balls of sound I have ever heard before.  It’s almost like hearing a battle of two different and opposing thoughts.  One on the side of blaming oneself and the other on finding the power and strength within to do what it takes to move on.  The vocals transfix me from the beginning, with a delicate quality that is both vulnerable and deceivingly powerful.  Keeping me spellbound until the bitter end.

PILLARS has created a track in “Attacker” with an undeniably alluring quality even though the underlying theme might feel dark and unappealing.  That is no small feat and bodes well for what is to come.

I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
