Reliably informed

The Ilfords have taken 2023 head on, following a particularly strong 2022 from the band after their self-proclaimed rebirth. The newest single from the outfit is Winlaton, which sees the band continue to refine their indie rock sound.

Exploring themes of disassociating, Winlaton feels like the band are inching ever closer to defining their sound, and this track maintains an anthemic quality that really suits them. Retaining its high energy throughout thanks to roaring guitar riffs and jangling drums, it’s well-paced and catchy. The stand-out moment is when the song de-escalates into its pre-chorus and bridge, offering the listener a pleasant breather before then launching into its passionately performed chorus.
