Illenium unveils immensely moving piano covers of ‘Awake’ tracks
Illenium has a uniquely evocative sound design and his rise in EDM is in large part thanks to his embodiment of the beautiful, more deeply introspective side of the genre. For years, the producer has opened the floodgates on gorgeous, sound design juxtaposed with melodic EDM style drops. With the release of his sophomore album Awake, Illenium ventured into a more commercial side of EDM, sure, but also did so without compromising the emotionally-inflicting tendencies of his music.
Now, Illenium fans and lovers of all emotive music will be delighted to find out that an EP of piano covers from Awake has arrived just in time for the holidays. “Beautiful Creatures,” “Fractures,” and “Crawl Outta Love” have all received piano covers thanks to Julien Marchal, Lorcan Rooney, and Lambert respectively. The tunes are incredibly captivating and ones that will awaken its listeners in its delightful production depth.
