IYES – Glow


It’s that time again. The name IYES popped up and again we find ourselves drowning in a baptism of gorgeous vocals, synths and our own tears. If you’re a regular reader to the site, you’ll know how much we favor them.

Consisting of Josh Christopher & Czech-born Melis Soyaslanová, Brighton-based super-duo IYES’ blend of glistening cinematic soundscapes, haunting melodies and super sleek vocals combine to create pure electro-pop perfection. Capturing our hearts with their tribal-esque track Til’ Infinity (which appears to be quite fitting as our love transcends through every release and at this rate is set to be eternally), they’ve now released their debut video for ‘Glow’ and you bet we’re glowing!

Melis adds

“The idea for the video was for us to look like we’re made from moondust, which we reflect. 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.”

To top all that off, the duo have now signed to Sony Music under exclusive licence of Love by Mistake which is the creative hotel for IYES, Deaths & Rude. Glow also soundtracks Sony’s Z3 Smartphone commercial worldwide. They will also support Raleigh Ritchie on his UK tour, with a headline show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on February 12th.
