To say I like IYES would be a massive understatement. Both their demos ‘Glow’ and ‘Lighthouse’ can frequently be heard blaring out of my bedroom.

I say demos… If you check out their soundcloud, these demos have notched up over 70,000 plays.

The duo, currently residing in Brighton, are often compared to Purity Ring and The XX. The dreamy vocals are layered on top of synths and percussion creating an electro pop sound which is addictively good.

Melis is originally from Prague but travelled to England two years ago. She met Josh at a party shortly after arriving and they then formed IYES.

If you want to find out more about IYES find them on twitter or check out their facebook.

Whatever you do, make sure you listen to their demos. I for one hope an album will be in the pipeline soon.
