Today, Bill Kaulitz, frontman for highly successful Tokio Hotel has released his new solo EP I’m Not OK under the name, BILLY. It is a great work of art that displays the growth and musicianship of Bill. It takes you on a passionate musical journey with emotionally driven lyrics and compelling tracks.
The five song EP kicks off with Love Don’t Break Me which we featured along with his cinematic video. The song truly brings out a depth of raw honest emotion and his voice is even more captivating. You can’t help but find yourself remembering that one love that you thought took your whole world away when it ended. It brings you back to that moment when you pick yourself back up and learn to move forward. It is a stellar track, check out the video here:
The song is just one part of the multi-media hybrid art project which also includes a stunning Black and White short-film directed by Shiro Gutzie and Davis Factor and an accompanying fine art photo book with selected images from the film and other original pictures by the directors. A series of large format art prints complete the ambitious art project. “I didn’t want to do a traditional music release for my first solo project” BILLY says “I wanted the freedom to explore the other areas in my life that I am passionate about like Art and Fashion and felt that a pure music project wouldn’t fulfill my vision as a solo artist.”
Next up is Not Over You and it perfectly balances the vulnerability of a broken heart and an infectious dance melody. Bill’s vocals are sweet caresses that you draw you in closer.
Odds Are Against Us is a great track that highlights a sultry mood and indie dance vibe. California High is a stand-out track with an alternative edge and sizzling vocals that bleed raw emotion. It is catchy and infectious and with a beat that will pulse through your veins as your heart races with sultry temptation.
The EP finishes up with Forbidden Love and once again you are greeted with soul bearing emotion and a song that will remind you of those forbidden loves of your past and the broken rules as it captures blissful passion.
We look forward to more music and videos as Bill shares his music with us. We will see if we can bring you an interview with Bill so we can find out more about his new music. You can pick up the EP by heading over to iTunes here. Make sure to also visit his social media sites so you can stay up to date on the latest news.
