2016 has started off in spectacular fashion musically, with new and exciting releases Eilish Gilligan’s debut track ‘The Dogs’ falls right into this category.

This Melbourne beauty specialises in all things pop. ‘The Dogs’ flaunts a heavy line of synths accompanied by tender vocals gliding over the backline effortlessly. We absolutely love the simplicity of the track, with its repetitive backline you become mesmerised instantly. Singing of trying to understand the logic behind sadness, when you realise there’s often no trigger or reason for it and the struggle to accept it, the lyrics are personal and thought provoking.
