18-year-old Chelmsford trio BILK return with their racing new single ‘CM2’.
With only a handful of releases to their name, BILK have already been championed by tastemakers on Radio 1, 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio.
The band have also been strongly supported by BBC Introducing In Essex’s Ollie Winberg, who has previously had the band in for a live session.
Having opened the Main Stage at RIZE Festival last year, BILK have also just announced their biggest run of headline shows to date, which includes the Camden Assembly on 17th April (full dates below). They are also confirmed for a host of festivals including Live At Leeds and Hit The North.
Frontman Sol’s Dad, who is a cab driver, inspired the band’s name - which comes from ‘Getting Bilked’, cabbie talk for when a customer runs off without paying the bill.
