Sydney songstress ILUKA is back with her shining new track, Get Free. Following on from her collaboration with Lime Cordiale, Mess, the song takes a more pop-infused approach and arrives alongside a vibrant visual, directed by Sophia de Vries.
The uplifting release is a blissful take on finding your own joy in life, acknowledging the tough times that can lead you to that happier place in life. Built upon an infectious beach with glistening synths laced throughout, Get Free features production by 2x Emmy nominated Aron Forbes (Billie Eilish, Finneas, Halsey, Banks), the singers main collaborator on her forthcoming debut album.
Speaking of the track, the singer shares: “I think it was a confession of the journey I've been on over the years. A celebration of the messy and long-winded route I've always taken - always a little left of centre and always in reach of something but never quite getting there, wherever 'there' even is. I think it was a way for me to find joy in that path rather than frustration and loneliness and in turn, to hopefully bring some kind of joy to the listeners.."
Filmed on Gundungurra and Darug land in the Blue Mountains, and choreographed by Matthew Gode, the colourful visual showcases lush and gorgeous Australian landscapes, bringing together colour, movement, light and space to create a joyous viewing experience. de Vries explains, “We wanted to create a visual journey that embodied the idea of feeling free. Expansive natural environments, vibrant colours and expressive movement. I was particularly inspired by the French filmmaker Eric Rohmer and the feeling of long summer days with no place to be.”
