EVERYONE YOU KNOW
^ Upstairs ^
EYK are like Everyone You Know – if Everyone You Know has a keen ear for the vital sounds of post-millennial Britain, from The Streets to Arctic Monkeys and all hip hop points in between… and is able to mash those influences together by producing tracks in a bedroom and a garage… then top off those tracks with sharply observed lyrics and rhymes and bars about suburban heel-kicking and small-town raving… then manages to use all that to land a record deal within four weeks of putting their first tunes up on Soundcloud. Just like Everyone You Know, right?
Everyone You Know are Rhys Kirkby-Cox (24, Man United through and through, a young father) and Harvey Kirkby (19, QPR till I die, a young studio geek). Technically – genetically – they’re half brothers, sharing a dad but not a mum. But really – actually – they’re just brothers, best mates and simpatico songwriters who produce beats out of an Uxbridge bedroom (Harvey) and craft lyrics in a Sandhurst garage (Rhys).
EVERYONE YOU KNOW released their powerful and passionate ‘LOOK AFTER YOUR PENNIES’ project, ahead of their first major festival appearance on the R1 Dance Stage at Reading and Leeds festivals.
An exemplary 2nd EP, the project reads like a rite of passage for young men in suburbia; exploring themes of frustration, friendship, family, challenges, coupled with happiness, hope, determination and dreams and lots more. A heady dose of the world articulated from the EYK narrative; the highs, the lows, high octane and high energy.
