Sophisticated and dreamy: “Eyes” by Philly duo @NiGHTS_official

NiGHTS, “Eyes”

In 2017, Philadelphia duo NiGHTS released a number of singles with a lot of unique flavours, but the one that latched on to me was “P A R T Y”, which ended up being a favourite of mine with its wonky rhythm and soulful but somewhat droll vocal.  The guys show another side to their music with the very chill and sophisticated alt.soul of “Eyes”.  It takes a few listens but it’s well worth it.  “Eyes” has a beautifully light and percussive rhythm, with the vocal here offering a really unexpectedly dreamy quality to the song.  It reminds me of some 70’s or 80’s R&B – Stevie Wonder’s “Send One Your Love” comes to mind – where you just take the graciousness of the song in stride and absorb all of what it offers.  “Eyes” could easily find its way onto a playlist where it could be comfortable side by side with songs by Drake or Janet Jackson (maybe “No Sleeep”).  Check it out at the link above.
