Brighton electro-pop duo IYES (pronouced "eyes") is comprised of Melis Soyaslanova, from Prague, and Josh Christopher, who met by happenstance a little more than a year ago at Christopher's flat. Their's is a formula that works: the male-female vocal interplay recalls the XX but where the latter employ serious economical minimalism, IYES' production swells to the seams. "Breathe" -- co-produced by MNEK -- is deliberately controlled with currents of hazy synths and rhythmic booms. The only space between beats plays like sparse euphoric exhales, a near-suffocation apt for a song about just that. Stream the track below, and look for a proper IYES release sometime late this year.
