Michal and Adam of the bilinda butchers are probably the most chill guys in chill-wave. Don’t ask them how old they are because they don’t like to talk about it; however, if you look at their mugs they are definitely still in their teens (and we’re jealous).
Their songs could remind you of hazy nights, smoking joints and kissing outside the house while the rest of your friends party inside. Whatever feelings the bilinda butchers may conjure for you, their songs are straight up alluring…seductive. They bring forth a sense of nostalgia, an ultimately relaxing and refreshing experience when you listen to their love-lust songs.
