Spring has well and truly sprung and as well as the re-emergence of flowers, greenery and even some sunshine, the last few weeks have brought about the return of a number of bands and artists. One band in particular has awoken from a hibernation that lasted much longer than the winter months.
It’s been over a year since we heard from Iyes, a year in which they have embarked on other projects. Josh’s Weirdo & Co are going from strength to strength and the little we’ve heard of Melis’ solo material has us salivating for more. So for the duo to come back together is a very welcome and unexpected treat.
We can only presume that the weather in Berlin has been significantly better than here in the UK. There is no way the few blissful hours of warmth we have had would have been sufficient to inspire the deliriously bright and bouncy floorfiller that is “Feelings”. It is positively tropical, sounding like the musical embodiment of gleeful, sunglasses wearing, poolside shape cutting delight. The beat is crazy infectious while the synths and electronics dazzle and shimmer as they reflect on the water.
Spring may have only just sprung, but it already feels like summer is here.
