Illenium Shows His Soft Side on the Nevve-Featuring 'Fractures': Exclusive

Justine Henderson

Denver's Illenium prides himself on his melodies. His future bass productions are rather cinematic. His takes on The Chainsmokers “Don't Let Me Down” and Flume's “Say It” are full of sweeping textures, the kind of stuff you'd play at an emotionally pivotal moment in a movie.

His original work is no less grand. His latest single “Fractures” leads with acoustic guitar and live drums. Singer Nevve adds a certain softness with an intimate performance. We can definitely see some teens falling in love to this one. You can snag "Fractures" for yourself online, listen to it below, as well as check Illenium's upcoming tour dates, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
