BILK are three working class eighteen year old lads, creating a unique angsty blend of indie, rap and punk from the suburbs of Essex. The brainchild of frontman Sol Abrahams, completed by bassist Luke Hare and drummer Harry Gray- their honest social commentary is at real as it gets, reflecting on the highs and lows of British youth culture today. CM2 is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the boys hometown of Chelmsford. Lead singer Sol Abrahams says: “I think CM2 is just about being bored where you live and the frustration of having nothing to do just because of the place you’re in.”
