Abraham Tilbury’s newest release Morphine was so captivating, we decided to get his number. We wanted to know a little bit more about the man behind the beautiful electronica.

I listened to his entire Soundcloud about 17 times, back through his older music under the name Allthingslost, and back again to Abraham Tilbury. I did not get bored. I just got more excited that I got to text him to find out what he was about.

His music is synthetic beauty; melodically uplifting but with an underlying sense of melancholy. Leaving whispering reminders of James Blake, Chet Faker and even Bon Iver, Abraham Tilbury is the fresh new electronic talent that Melbourne needs. Everyone else is in a band.
