Toronto band Illyin Pipes is celebrating summer with a new single and music video premiere with Indie88. The new song, called “Waking Up,” is described as “a nostalgic look at a carefree summer.” The song’s accompanying video sees Illyin Pipes’ lead singer Jill frolicking through wildflower fields, saluting a lake on a warm evening, and reaching high among countryside cliffs.
“I was struggling with a few things while trying to maintain an illusion of positivity and balance,” explains 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.”
“Waking Up” is the newest single off of Illyan Pipes’ upcoming EP Spaces, which is set to release in August. Watch the video for “Waking Up” below.
