Illy played a series of launch shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in November, where he showcased tracks from the Triple j feature album for the very first time.

“Illy's fifth LP is packed with the signature slick, radio-friendly sound… delivering a near-bulletproof blend of pop, EDM and hip-hop.” – Rolling Stone
“Two Degrees deftly strikes a balance between party songs and sonic tales of life’s struggles. And sometimes they are both, Illy achieving that Holy Grail of pop music where an upbeat melody disguises a darker lyric.” – Herald Sun
