IYES – “Glow”

artworks-000046928089-bnikas-t300x300

Seemingly appearing from a dreamworld, complete with background ambient vocals and echoing instrumental melodies, “Glow” shines as a beautiful track that shows the stark contrast between elegance and power.┬áMelis Soyaslanova’s crisp and clean vocals complement the hypnotic trance-like qualities of the opening few seconds, with a trickling and playful key arpeggio. Just when it seems like you could listen to Soyaslanova’s voice cut through the atmospheric tone forever, Josh Christopher explodes into a rising chorus that can’t help but be sung along to. The blatant differences in tone throughout set this track apart as one of brilliance and depth.┬áBringing both power and sensitivity, IYES fits right in when compared to the likes of Alt-J, Passion Pit, and even Matt & Kim. It’s hard to believe that this version of “Glow” is a demo, as it already appears polished enough for universal acclaim.
