Illyin Pipes - Waking Up

Whilst I've not featured Illyin Pipes exclusively here before, I knew the name was familiar and a quick search reveals the Canadian based outfit did make their way on to my April 2014 Playlist (RIP) series. Here they return with a brand new video to latest single Waking Up, and if anything, it makes me feel quite damn sad for living in the UK and not coming across any locations nearly half as gorgeous as the ones in shot. Filmed on a recent tour through England the beautifully pieced together and colour graded clip provides the perfect backdrop to the band's arpeggiated synth pad textures and soaring vocals. "I was struggling with a few things while trying to maintain an illusion of positivity and balance" explains singer Jill. "The dichotomy of stability and disorder is present in ‘Waking Up’ as well as the remainder of the EP’s songs, even if that wasn't intentional when we wrote them." Take a watch for yourselves above.
