It seems a bit strange that Londoners The Naked Eye have been sharing music on their Soundcloud page for over a year yet they’re only just gearing up to release their debut EP. Why is that strange? Well it’s partly because the group is the project of singer Frenchie and producer Charlie P, but it probably stems more from how they exude an effortless confidence with their easy-to-listen-to blend of trip-hop inflected beats and soulful vocals.
‘River Of No Return’ is no different, as it glides through with a sensitive vocal performance and some gentle electronic production underpinning the song, which is as easy as a Sunday morning. It’s the first taste of their upcoming debut EP, which is out next year, and it’s definitely an endearing introduction to anyone unfamiliar with their work.
