About this item
Inspired by the psychological effects of modern life and their direct personal experiences, The Steoples are back with their second album for Stones Throw, ‘Wide Through The Eyes Of No One’.
Drawing on an eclectic range of sounds from Latin rhythms to 1980s soul and sombre tones of folk fused with R&B, ‘Wide Through The Eyes Of No One’ incorporates live instrumentation from a new cast of players. The album also explores social commentary, with confessional lyrics that contemplate the nuances of isolation.
The Steoples are the LA-based avant-soul duo of Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker and Yeofi Andoh. The pair’s second album for Stones Throw follows on from their debut ‘Six Rocks’.
Gabriel has released two albums as Frankie Reyes on Stones Throw: ‘Boleros Valses y Mas’ in 2016 and ‘Originalitos’ in 2020. He has also released music under the alias Gifted & Blessed. Yeofi has previously collaborated with artists including Theo Parrish and DJ Spinna under the moniker A Race of Angels.
For fans of Frankie Reyes, A Race Of Angels, The Black Pumas, Earl St. Clair, Steve Arrington, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Michael Kiwanuka, Little Dragon.
Matt says: The illusive and erratic The Steoples switch tact from Gifted & Blessed to Stones Throw, pushing a more avant-soul sound for the adventurous.
