Australian pop darling Owl Eyes twirls into the spotlight with a lush yet danceable disco stomper ‘You and I’ accompanied by the sun-lit B-Side ‘Le Soleil’ – two tracks entwined with the parallel intensity of love, both from a different viewpoint.
Beckoning to the disintegration of love, ‘You and I’ masks raw, honest lyrics with an alluring upbeat composition reminiscent of 70s era disco featuring hazy bass, luscious synths, and a summoning call-to-action of lyrics which add a deeper context to the at first breezy track. On second listen Owl Eyes’ sweetly soothing vocals tell of the emotional chaos that love can make you feel, almost a taunt to the upbeat nature of the track. As the song builds a crescendo of lush sounds crashes until we meet Owl Eye’s final command: Dance. It’s an undeniably sweet yet fiercely femme treasure that only Owl Eyes can conjure.
