"Eyes Like Sky"

frank ocean

This elliptical ballad (an unauthorized leak, presumably of a Channel Orange outtake) quietly reaffirms the songwriter's bona fides. Over some strummed acoustic guitar and loose kick-drum grooves, Ocean sings achingly of a blind boy who "sees" in colors. And when Ocean slyly croons, "I wish you could see the ocean," it's enough to break your heart in two ways.
