Dreamy, heavy and melodic shoegaze rock from Toronto, Canada.
The revival of Toronto band, Iris, comes with a new beginning and a new EP. There are traces of their deconstructive melancholic spirit that we came to know earlier but they have since suspended themselves deeper into the shoegaze genre and into a more experimental sound with their transformative power of guitar music. New singer and bass player Meg Boni’s silvery voice appears vulnerable yet delivers soaring above drummer Leigh Fisk and guitarists Angel Scorcia & (singer) Scott Downes. Their talent shines throughout all four songs, with piercing and interwoven melodies, swirling guitars, and a distortion that bleeds raw emotion. Iris is a flawlessly constructed soundscape and an EP so devastatingly divine that it is impossible to listen to just one song. - Sheila Haghdoust
