Song of the Day: Ill Considered – The Lurch
London's free-wheeling live improvisers Ill Considered released a new single The Lurch featuring Tamar Osborn, Sarathy Korwar, Theon Cross and more. The band open a new chapter in their career with their first fully produced studio album Liminal Space out November 15th on New Soil.
Having exploded onto the scene with 9 self-released albums between 2017 and 2019, UK-based outfit Ill Considered are breaking new ground with their first fully produced studio album and an interactive audio/visual performance residency at Southbank Centre's Purcell Room, this autumn.
Capturing a moment of transformation for the group, Liminal Space not only features a new core line-up of Idris Rahman (saxophone), Liran Donin (bass) and Emre Ramazanoglu (drums), but also sees Ill Considered bounce their live-wire style off a range of collaborators such as Collocutor’s Tamar Osborn, Steam Down saxophonist Ahnanse, Sons Of Kemet tuba player Theon Cross and percussionist Sarathy Korwar.
Listen to Ill Considered new single The Lurch, from The band forthcoming new album Liminal Space:
Ill Considered are a band comprising of musicians interacting with each other to create freely improvised music, based loosely around simple pre-written themes or composed on the spot. Deep grooves and plaintive melodies ranging from whispered chants to monstrous climaxes, the group react to the mood of the audience and the sonics of the room to create music that is unique to the moment.
