Ezra, Lilah and Josh, known as Sons of An Illustrious Father, talked to Dork Magazine about the band and its inspirations. You can read the article below.

Music – much like any form of creativity – is made to endure. Every so often you can come across a song that feels like it’s speaking directly to you. Sometimes it’s a melody or rhythm that connects more than words ever could. Other times, it’s an earworm that you can’t shake no matter how badly you might want to. Whatever the method, music has a habit of sticking with you. Spread across a sofa on a dreary day in London, Ezra Miller, Lilah Larson, and Josh Aubin are prepared to go wherever the music takes them.

“I like to lube it, lube it, so I can move it move it,” Lilah sings. “C’mon! That’s obviously what it should have been,” she laughs. Talking before the group play their first show on their European tour, the energy is understandably high. “It’s amazing. We feel very fortunate and very blessed,” Lilah enthuses.

“Also very tired – and confused.” “I’m mostly just confused,” Josh agrees. “I mean, that’s my normal level of where I am, but then it gets amplified.”

Cross-genre trio Sons Of An Illustrious Father are breaking new musical ground with their songs of queer resilience.

“We aspire to be demonised,” announces Ezra Miller of Sons Of An Illustrious Father, the cross-genre, queer-spirited group formed with childhood best friend Lilah Larson, and their more recently-found mutual soulmate Josh Aubin.

The group are in London for the first show of a European tour in support of their second album, Deus Sex Machina: Or, Moving Slowly Beyond Nikola Tesla. Like much of this year’s most resonant art, the record is characterised by a complex kind of resilience. The single “Extraordinary Rendition” takes it name from a CIA-practised form of abduction, and centres the generational pain of growing up in the US post-9/11. “Unarmed” preaches the power of creativity in the face of the horrors of the world, but doesn’t shy away from the viscera of those horrors (“Who’ll stay in this fight when they start shooting… I should never say we were unarmed/’Cause we were armed with the music”). The closing track “Samscars” is a meditative, tender cocoon; emphasising the importance of (chosen) family and community for survival: “If I cling to you/You cling to me/We cling to life”

Ezra Miller’s not just a breath of fresh air in Hollywood. Along with Josh Aubin and Lilah Larson, he’s also making raging and boundary-pushing music away from the big screen

A few things you might know about the American actor Ezra Miller: he began his career with a dose of well-deserved critical acclaim, starring alongside Tilda Swinton in We Need To Talk About Kevin. Since then, you might also recognise him from The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Justice League, and, most, recently the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The star – who prefers not to identify with any gender, and is happy with all pronouns: “I don’t identify. Like, fuck that,” he told The Hollywood Reporter – is undoubtedly a breath of fresh air for Hollywood. In recent months, Miller has been seen rocking high heels on the cover of Playboy magazine, chatting about polyamory and gender-fluidity in various interviews, and wearing a gigantic puffa jacket-stroke-robe on the red carpet.

Another thing you might not know about Ezra Miller: he’s got a habit of composing strange, improvised songs without any prior notice. Today, he paces around a white corridor, lit by a fluorescent strip light, singing a ditty to himself. “Hospital prison, hospital prison, I went to school here, hospital prison.” His bandmates hum along approvingly; as it happens, Miller is also in a band. Sons Of An Illustrious Father have been going for over a decade, ever since he met his bandmate Lilah Larson back at school. After putting out a call for a touring bassist some years later, third member Josh Aubin answered, and, in his words: “I was never asked to leave.”
