Naked Eyes is a British new wave band that rose to prominence in the early 1980s. Originally a duo, the band is known largely for its four US top 40 singles.
The first was a cover of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David standard “(There’s) Always Something There to Remind Me”. The band had subsequent hits with their own compositions, “Promises, Promises” (not to be confused with the Bacharach/David musical number), “When the Lights Go Out,” and “(What) In the Name of Love.”
Naked Eyes was formed by two college friends from Bath, England. The band features Pete Byrne on vocals and Rob Fisher on keyboards. The two had formerly played in a band called Neon, which also featured future members of Tears for Fears.
