Wyles & Simpson // Stormy Skies

Since converging two years ago, vocalist Abigail Wyles and producer Holly Simpson have been slowly making a name for themselves with their sparse and evocative tunes that give us an insight into what FKA Twigs might sound like if she was overcome by the xx’s ethereality. Judging by new single ‘Stormy Skies’, in those two years they’ve worked out how to balance all those elements of their sound – Simpson’s serene palette of hushed, pneumatic beats and warm ebbs of synths leaving just enough space for Wyles’ dusky and powerful vocals.  So good that they’re practically obliged to provide us with more; and fortunately, their self-titled debut album is out on March 23rd on MTA Records.
