News has just come in of IYES follow up to last year’s debut single Til Infinity. Breathe has been released today on Duly Noted Records, produced by the band with additional production duties from MNEK. As with most of their songs, Josh and Melis share vocal duties, and the additional production gives Breathe more of an urban edge than some of their earlier material. Breathe is out now and available to buy through iTunes.
“Breathe is our sexiest song,” says Josh. “We wrote it with an image in mind of a naked lady, in a jungle, with a snake wrapped around her. The beat came first – we wanted a tribal sound featuring lots of percussive elements. Melis’ voice is often quiet and cute. It’s always beautiful, but I thought it would be great to get some sass out of her. Hence the no clothes and the python idea.”
“Josh showed me clips on YouTube with wild animals – lions, snakes, tigers – all in slow motion, looking very sensual and dangerous” says Melis. “The track’s demo title was Jungle Sex. I loved the concept but when he started mentioning video ideas with naked women, I told him he’d best get another girl.”
