With her new single ‘Say It With Your Eyes’ out now, we caught up with Eyelar to talk Pokemon, playing the Royal Albert Hall and vegan dahl.

A summery and vibrant pop track, ‘Say It With Your Eyes’ offers swirling and sultry swathes of electronica combined with emotive, intimate lyrics. A well-established songwriter whose credits include the likes of Charli XCX, Demi Lovato and Bastille, the Dutch-born and now London-based artist is making her mark as a rising pop star in her own right.
