All credit to pop duo IYES, for in 2015, the year of the complete attention span deficit, they’ve just banged out a pop song that has an instrumental intro that lasts nearly a minute, and a tune that takes its full journey over the five - we predict a radio edit. That length might not seem much of an achievement, but trust us, there will be people reading this blog post who have already skipped the text, played 15 seconds of the song, decided it’s not for them and scrolled down to something else that they’ll probably spend less than a minute with. Imagine if you treated your love life like that? Oh hold on, that's called Tinder isn't it? Let’s all s-l-o-w d-o-w-n a bit shall we and take time to really enjoy something.
The song itself is called So Crazy. We’re beginning to think IYES are trying to tell us something having already issued a cover of Crazy In Love. This one is a thing of swirling computer game electronics, boy girl vocals, lyrics about 'delete our mutual friends' and 'just admit the record ends', and a chorus that builds to the heavens. It’s from a forthcoming EP called Part One, so we guess there will be more parts to follow after that.
