IYES – Part One

Brighton duo, IYES returns with a new EP called ‘Part One’.

The last song from the EP is ‘Lions’, and it’s our favourite, as well as theirs.

It seems like Josh and Melis have really settled into their rhythm with this EP, adding more of an upbeat slant to production and saving the best track til last.

The ‘Part One’ EP was released on 14 August via Love by Mistake and can be purchased on iTunes here.

Sounds like: The XX Phoria, James Blake, Niki & The Dove, Chvrches, Ellie Goulding, Ben Khan

IYES is Brighton girl/boy duo Josh Christopher and Czech-born Melis Soyaslanová.

It’s been a bit quiet on the IYES front, but they are finally back with a stunning track titled ‘Glow’.

The Kenny McKracken video for ‘Glow’ is just as cool as the recent Sony Xperia Z3 advert that the track has been featured in.

“The idea for the video was for us to look like we’re made from moondust, which we reflect,” says Melis. “We wanted something strange and amazing and unexpected that you can’t take your eyes off because you have to find out how it ends. We’re super proud of it.”

‘Glow’ is out on 22 December via Love by Mistake (a new imprint of Sony records run by the band) but can be pre-ordered on iTunes now.
