Brighton duo IYES shared promising demos “Glow” and “Lighthouse” earlier this year, and then went a bit quiet. Nothing could prepare us for the storm of “’Til Infinity.”
Mixing kitchen-sink drums with cooing vocals, bright synths and an eye-popping chorus, the duo’s new single is an immediate sell. Garage blips, warm boy/girl vocals and infectious melodies make for a thickly layered electro-pop sound that sucks you in seconds into the track. You know you’ve found a beauty when melodies rattle around your head after just one listen.
Catch IYES at Brighton Dome Studio Bar, Brighton on 22 November and Servant Jazz Quarters, London 25 November.
