Stay Illusion is a quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The band attempts to recapture the ardour of his work through their music and performance. Their style of alternative rock can be ethereal, dreamy and sometimes even a bit dramatic. Founded at the end of 2017, the group from Thun have just released their debut single with the promise of an EP scheduled for release in autumn 2020.
The single, Tired of Tears, is at some points reminiscent of a utopia, basking in the warm glow of a golden sunrise. It is tainted by a dark cloud which has been lurking for a while and won’t seem to shift, but it’s time to leave the pain and grief behind. The song is a cry of desperation, but it’s also hopeful that the future could be brighter than the bleak days of the past. The song flows seamlessly and reveals the raw emotion behind the lyrics, transporting the listener to another world.
