PREMIERE | Maddy O’Neal Recruits Manic Focus On Funky Electro Soul Collab “Light In Your Eyes”

||, |, ,

Today we're excited to be premiering the latest track from Maddy O’Neal, which comes in the form of a collaboration featuring Manic Focus. Maddy and Manic both reside in the soulful, funky side of electronic production and their sounds come together effortlessly on “Light in Your Eyes.”

“Light in Your Eyes” was one of those tracks that just came to together magically piece by piece. John and I have worked together before but only doing remixes for each other so it was cool to put our minds together on this one on an original piece” – Maddy O’Neal

“Working with Maddy is always awesome, but our artistic chemistry on "Light in Your Eyes" was special. She threw down a nasty composition that I really vibed with, and the result is a fun, energetic track that shows how well our styles flow together. Whether you're sitting poolside or on your way to a music festival, this is definitely a cut that you'll wanna bump this summer.” – Manic Focus 

We last had the pleasure of featuring Maddy on the site for her “Viral Love” collab with Marvel Years, and today shares her proper follow-up to her 2017 EP, and it was well worth the wait. Both artists come together effortlessly here as the soft vocals kick off the track that evolves with layers and layers throughout, adding in melodic keys, undeniable vocal chops, punching percussion and glitchy synths alongside soulful horns tying it all together. Be sure to catch Maddy on her tour, see dates below and grab tickets here. Enjoy!
