In December of last year I had the pleasure of interviewing The Sexbots' Ilima Considine on The Knix Mix. (Check out the December 15, 2013 blog post here.) Big things have been happening in her life since we last spoke, including a tour in Japan, a break up and a new album inspired by the breakup. The new album drops soon, and Ilima has plans underway for a supporting tour in the Northeast.
Ilima says that the new album was meant to be a concept album of light and life, and some songs were already written. That changed three week after her return from Japan, when she broke up with the person she describes as "the love of her life." She found herself grieving and unable to work. After a couple of months, she dusted herself off, dyed her hair red and turned her sorrow into an EP of songs about the relationship. The working title for the album has been "Songs for Jamil," but she says that it's not a diss album. She maintains that, while they didn't always bring out the best in each other, this man still remains the love of her life.
Our chat covers such varied topics as what does a person with severe food allergies find to eat in Japan, the difficulty of navigating your hometown when you could run into your ex anywhere you go, going on the road when you're a single mom of two and planning a tour on the other side of the country. You know you want to know the answers to these and many other questions!
