Elysian – [Children of Illios]

Children of Illios is back again with their latest video for their single, Elysian.  Nick of Visual Mecca collaborates with Illios on the retro-like visual.  The video reminds me of Common‘s Resurrection video from the early ’90s.  The use of an older mural for cinematic value is impeccable for the feel of the song. Perhaps my favorite bar of the track comes from Kairo, “You claim you can beat us, but even Jesus gotta stretch to reach us.” Elysian was featured on Young Chicago Authors’ Louder Than a Bomb 2015 mixtape amongst other Chicago rising stars such as Ace Da Vinci, Ric Wilson, and Daryn Alexus. Be on the lookout for Children of Illios’ debut LP, Journey Through the Blakk Sun, releasing sometime tomorrow.
