Iris Lune is a Brooklyn-based quartet whose music revolves around creating evocative imagery through elaborate and affecting soundscapes. On the “Sewing Skylines to Shores,” the first single off their forthcoming second EP, the band takes the listener on an otherwordly experience with their unique brand of experimental pop.
“In the song, which was inspired by the story of Virginia Woolf’s suicide, the person finds his or her way to clarity and peace through parting from this world -- but there are many ways to find that freedom,” lead singer Ella Joy says.
Joy’s vocals are simultaneously commanding and soft, with a unique intimacy that layers nicely over the powerful production. The transcendent themes and subterranean imagery are paired with ebbing synths that swell to an epic crescendo.
