Following on from their recent release ‘Let a Little Light In’, multifaceted sibling duo Everyone You Know (EYK) have dropped their new track ‘Charlie’ accompanied by an official video that the band directed themselves. Watch/listen HERE.
The single features a lyric sample from The Streets’ ‘Weak Become Heroes’ which has Mike Skinner’s blessing. The track embodies EYK’s signature style with synth layered beats and a continuous flow of pensive lyrics, creating an ethereal and moody track.
Speaking about the release, EYK say: ‘We wrote this song around the same time as ‘She Don’t Dance’, and it was originally gonna be the follow up single. For one reason or another we ended up going with something else, but that’s the headspace we were in whilst making it. It’s essentially a story about a woman’s relationship with ‘Charlie’ (you can interpret that how you like) over a darker club beat. We had a lot of fun making this record so we hope you lot enjoy it.’
EYK have had a rapid rise to success in a short space of time, amassing over 52 million worldwide streams, an explosive 15-date sold out UK tour, as well as a UK mainstage festival debut at Reading & Leeds and a stint as UK brand ambassadors for Reebok.
