Our favourite brother duo, Everyone You Know, curate a much-needed banging playlist of the 10Trax they are spinning in self-isolation after the release of their latest single.
2019 was a stellar year for our favourite brothers in arms, Everyone You Know, who picked apart the key pillars of British suburbia in their stunning EP, ‘Look After Your Pennies’.
Storming into 2020 the only way these boys know-how, Everyone You Know aren’t putting on the brakes anytime soon. Despite the current turbulent times we are sailing into, Everyone You Know released their latest anthem which came in the form of ‘Seen It All’. Accompanied by a cinematic and emotive visual, when it comes to detailed storytelling, Everyone You Know leave no stone unturned.
Speaking on their latest track, Everyone You Know revealed, “’Seen It All’ is a track about the people closest to you seeing you at your most vulnerable and you seeing them at theirs. It’s about the people that have seen you consistently make mistakes and make bad decisions but are still there for you regardless, even if you don’t learn from them.”
The narrative of Everyone You Know is the depiction of British suburbia and how everything isn’t what it seems to be from the outside. The trials and tribulations of growing up in the modern age with all of the obstacles that come with it – Everyone You Know are masters at storytelling and their artistry is something everyone can relate to. Always representing the times we live in, we for one can’t wait to see what these boys get up to next.
For now, enjoy their 10Trax below and as soon as you’re done with that, dive into their enigmatic new single ‘Seen It All’ – trust, you won’t regret it.
"Free Years Later" by Kano
"This is the best intro to an album I’ve heard in a long time. The strings, the vocal chops the lyrics and flow.. Everything about this tune is bang. He opened his set with this at the Royal Albert Hall at the back end of last year and it gave me goosebumps. Absolute class." - Rhys
"Colours" by Josie Man
"I found out about this tune through Josh Scarbrow (who produced it) after we worked with him a couple months back and I’ve been rinsing it ever since. It’s just a proper feel good tune. The vocals are wicked and it gave me an early Lily Allen vibe. So I’m a big fan!" - Rhys
"Orange" by Dream McLean
"This whole EP is nuts to be honest. I love the fact that the flows are so nonchalant and effortless but the lyrics and punchlines still bang. If you haven’t had a chance yet check out the full EP (Alien) it’s on job." - Rhys
"Girls, Girls, Girls" by Jay-Z
"Since Jay-Z has stuck his catalogue up on Spotify I’ve been going back through all his old tracks that I haven’t heard in a while. Reasonable Doubt, Hard Knock Life, The Blueprint.. Them albums are just incredible from beginning to end! So I’ve been playing them a lot recently." - Rhys
"Silver" by DMA's
"Obviously we opened for these lads at the beginning of March. I loved this tune before, but seeing it live and how the crowd reacted made me love it even more. It’s got such a nostalgic feel to it. Great track!" - Rhys
"Whip" by KO
"Big big tune. From start to finish, everything about it bangs." - Harvey
"U Say" by GoldLink
"Proper summer vibe this one. I rate GoldLink a lot and have been a fan since ‘The God Complex’ that he released back in 2014." - Harvey
"Hit The Block" by SL & Pa Salieu
"Wicked tune. Production wise and vocal wise. All round banger." - Harvey
"Helicopter" by J Hus
"This is my tune at the moment, been rinsing it non stop since it came out. Big fan of J Hus and his new project ‘Big Conspiracy’." - Harvey
"Insurance" by Wretch 32
"Banger. I’ve been playing this a lot recently, along with the rest of the album. To me, Wretch is the best lyricist to come out of the UK, with Kano and Ghetts not far behind."
