New-ish Band: Billie Eilish

I heard a new band on the radio named after the singer Billie Eilish. It’s a cool mix of jazz, dubstep, and dance. The singer’s voice has an interesting tenor, similar to Mazzy Star or maybe Billie Holiday. The song Bad Guy has a nice hook to it. It was released on YouTube a week ago and already has 47 million views. To be fair, the band isn’t really new. They released their debut album 2 years ago.

Bad Guy – Nice infectious groove

Another song, Bury a Friend is solid, but it really reminds me of People are Strange by the Doors. There is this one part that is identical.

The singer’s full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell born in 2001. That’s a pretty bad ass name. She writes music with her brother Finneas O’Connell. Where is his crazy names? He played Alistair on Glee apparently.

What’s up with this family? All beautiful and musically talented. Seems kinda unfair. I want to be beautiful and musically gifted too, don’t you? Well, I guess the grass is always greener, yadda yadda.

Whatya think?
