Eilis Frawley biography

“Krautrock-precision drum rhythms overlaid with straight and true spoken word vocals. If we had to pick two musical reference points, we’d say it has the attitude and style of Tune-Yards coupled with the experimental swagger of Battles”LOLA Magazine

“As the subtle, commanding power of Frawley’s poetic spoken word lyricism flows, the track {illusions} builds to a psychedelic electronic soundscape, oozing a swirling emotion and sparkling, ethereal majesty. Fusing together innovative layers of instrumentation and speech, it’s a wonderfully unique cacophony, with a truly stirring sentiment that resonates deeply”Get In Her Ears

“With “Stats” and the accompanying video, Eilis Frawley has succeeded in creating a small, informative work of art that is visually entertaining, musically cool and unapologetically feminist in terms of content”Missy Mag

“Whilst relatively short, the EP {adult life} grips you from the off and doesn’t let go, leaving you breathless by the end of the final track”Louder Than War

“Looking at a range of hard hitting topics through a relatable lens and poetry, the EP gives listeners and Frawley the chance to ask who they are and where they would like to go”  – The Other Side reviews
