IOTA PHI is a Greek singer, songwriter, director and record producer. Inspired by ideas of identity, post humanism and greek mythology, her sound effortlessly brings together a swirling mix of Alternative Electronic, Pop and R&B in a truly original and elegant Art-Pop package.
Having enjoyed major support from the likes of Spin, Rolling Stone India, XS Noize, Purple Melon, Esquire, Vogue, Popjustice, Earmilk and Videostatic, Ilia’s first studio work which was released by EMI, topped the Greek charts.
The release of the enigmatic ‘Wolves Mate For Life’ which gained placements on Spotify’s New Music Friday among other editorial playlists, set the tone for her upcoming album ‘Homo Pauperis’ (Poor Man).
Homo Pauperis will be released through her record label Desire Bay, an entirely self-produced album with the help of Mikael Delta (Stereo Nova).
” Ilia Darlin performs on stage as if the Panda Theater was the Hollywood Bowl. That is how one should do it.” Musikexpress – Pop-Kultur Berlin
“Ilia has perfected a performative style like no other in the music industry…she gradually shed her layers as she shuffled into a hypnotic and futuristic goth-pop that took a mystical turn with the use of the traditional organ of santour, creating a perfectly orchestrated musical chaos.”
