Prepare yourself. We’re not even sure we have the words to accurately describe how haunting this song is. When Billie Eilish first released “Ocean Eyes,” the song was on repeat.

Born to two musician/actor parents, Billie Eilish is an L.A. based youth who’s proving not to be just a one-hit wonder. Her angelic voice carries a sadness that resonates beyond her years, and when layered like so in “Ocean Eyes,” it’s audio heaven. There’s no doubt she’s one to watch and definitely one worth introducing.
