We’ve seen IYES a couple of times now and they definitely have The XX factor.
IYES are Brighton based Josh Christopher and Melisa Soyaslanova.
With just 2 demos under their indietronica belts, they have already received mentions in The Sunday Times and plays on national radio stations.
Their first demo, ‘Lighthouse’, starts off vacant and bleak. However, the track soon gains momentum breaking into a satisfying and gutsy electronic power ballad of melodic heartbeats.
IYES supported CITIZENS! in Brighton last November. They are playing Brighton again on 9 October and London on 10 October. We strongly recommend you go watch them!
Sounds like: The XX, Nordic Giants, Phoria, James Blake, Niki & The Dove, Chvrches
