In the run up to the release of their eagerly anticipated debut album Brighton duo IYES, comprised of Melis Soyaslanova and Josh Christopher, have released a live acoustic version of their new track ‘Simmer’. Utilising simply a guitar and vocals (including some stunning harmonies), this is a beautiful piece which above anything else demonstrates the strength of the band’s songwriting prowess. Although lead singer Melis sounds a little out of breath at points due to up-tempo nature of the song, the lead vocal melody is absolutely my favourite aspect of this track; it’s catchy without being repetitive as well as being sonically pleasing for the duration of the entire track. You can download the live version of ‘Simmer’ for free here and listen to it here:
Those who enjoyed this track may be interested in seeing IYES’ first music video, which was released at the end of last year to accompany their uplifting track ‘Glow’ – have a look:
Finally, the band is playing in London at Hoxton Bar And Kitchen on the 12th February – you can buy tickets for that here.
