Idesia – Sun Eyes

Idesia’s got more than a little something goin on, blending a delicious R&B, hip-hop, neo-soul, jazz smoothie into a satiating gift to the ears and soul. Sophie’s flawlessly unique timbre weaves in and out of the hip-hop drums, glossy keyboard lines and cleverly placed bass lines. One would think Dilla, Madlib or Flying Lotus are the masterminds behind the off-beat drum grooves in the verses, but they’re not. It’s just Idesia doing Idesia. Then the four on the floor starts to kick (get it?) in the chorus, pleasantly changing the feel of the song altogether. Idesia’s music possesses a keen ability to gently slip into my subconscious and take my mind to atmospheric and ethereal dwellings that I frankly don’t mind being taken to. Like a much needed massage after a week of exhausting workouts, let Idesia’s “Nu” be your massage after a long, hard day of work as you kick your feet up and perhaps crack open a cold one and light up a bold one.

Idesia - Sun Eyes

Idesia – Sun Eyes

Idesia – Sun Eyes Lyrics:
Take me to when I was younger than before
Break free, skip time
Don’t be so ready to move forward

Summer storms so sweet
Can’t escape the heat
Sounds beneath the sky
Hoppin trains at night
North Avenue Beach
Wicker Park, no sleep
I remember home,
Miss it when I’m gone, except when I have

Sun eyes
I’ll see you when I see you
And always you know
I’ll keep you in my heartache

Slow down, I’m walking too fast
Snow town, can’t wait to pass
Low clouds, are blocking your face
I’m home now, I’ll remove all the haze
