Iyves returns with cinematic R&B anthem "Gold"

Brooklyn-based songwriter Iyves has maintained a relatively low profile since her breakout EP Chromatic dropped last year, a release lauded by many outlets for its urbane alternative R&B sound. With newly arrived single “Gold,” Iyves reemerges on the scene after a year-long hiatus, laying down a sleek, dramatic foray into the New York night. As a track, “Gold” finds strength in its cinematic delivery—its vocals grows from muted to explosive over the song’s three minutes, playing opposite to grandiose electronic bass hits, in a performance that wouldn’t feel out of place in a Bond film’s opening credits. It’s an exciting, theatric ride, one that promises more sultry jams from Iyves throughout the second half of 2019. Stream it below.
