‘It’s In Your Eyes’ is a slice of sophisticated urban soul featuring iconic Moss Side singer Diane Charlemagne (Moby, Urban Cookie Collective, Goldie) and Simon Wolstencroft, long term member of The Fall and Ian Brown’s drummer.
On hearing the demo of the track, Andy Rourke, iconic bass player and member of The Smiths joined the collective to lay down some of his signature bass lines, underpinning the infectious melody. Strings come courtesy of ex-Elbow and I Am Kloot’s Jote Osahn, making this a real Mancunian tour de force.
The track was produced by Mike Bennett (The Fall, Ian Brown, The Specials and Kim Fowley), arranged and engineered by Pete Booker (The Kinks, Justin Timberlake and East 17) and has been remixed by Youth who has produced a powerful Drum and Bass version of the track.
