IOTA PHI Quotes/Press Reviews:
" Ilia Darlin performt auf der Bühne, als wäre das Panda Theater die Hollywood Bowl. Vielleicht muss man es genau so machen."
Musikexpress - Pop-Kultur Berlin
“Ilia has perfected a performative style like no other in the local 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.”
