Electro-soul NYC trio JIL plays Mercury Lounge on 12/2

Despite a number of high-profile perfomances with the likes of Pusha T and Dev Hynes, electro-RnB act JIL have kept a relatively low profile up until now. With a lack of information out there about them, the trio has let the three tracks released to date do all the talking - and they certainly have lots to "say." The band's sound is a head-bopping mix of distorted synths and guitars, booming percussion and the soulful, pristine vocals of their anonymous singer. Latest single "All Your Words," (streaming) sounds like a dark, tempestous sea thrashing about, while unexpectedly serene vocals seem to offer safe haven above its rough waves — and a vantage point to stare at the chaos below. JIL can't release new material soon enough. Maybe you can hear some when they take the Mercury Lounge's stage on 12/2. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber
