With her music, Berlin-based singer, songwriter, and producer IRYS creates strong imagery; dark, distinct, and damn appealing! Her "future-retro" sound is a catchy, rather goth approach to electro-pop, with darkwave and indie electronica elements.
 
IRYS' sultry voice builds an exciting contrast to energetic electronic sounds, while
her compositions astonish with their finesse.

I. ABOUT "CIRCLES"

After independently releasing her first three singles in spring and early summer '21, and in a short time
amassing more than 400K streams across the platforms, IRYS now delivers her fourth song, "Circles". The new
single has the same dark retro feel as the previous releases but comes in even grimier and more hooky.


"I created the track around a synth riff, and 'Circles' originally was meant to be an instrumental. The vocals

came later, and I then shaped the track into a goth kind of pop tune."


For IRYS, "Circles" is a song about ruminating thoughts:

"Some years ago, I lived through a dark time in my life, and I had thought loops in my mind 24/7! It was quite a
disturbing experience, and I tried to process it musically. This is how I came up with 'Circles' - a track that is
dark and repetitive, trying to mirror the feeling of having your brain under high pressure!"

II. ABOUT IRYS

With her music, Berlin-based singer, songwriter, and producer IRYS creates strong imagery; dark, distinct, and
damn appealing! Her "future-retro" sound is a catchy, rather goth approach to electro-pop, with darkwave and
indie electronica elements.

 

IRYS' sultry voice builds an exciting contrast to energetic electronic sounds, while
her compositions astonish with their finesse. She has the rare ability to create songs that hook you straight
away - making you feel like in a dark dream listening to an alternate Soundtrack of "Drive".

 

In her music, one can also sense the influence of acts like Boy Harsher, Gesaffelstein, Charlie XCX, and The Weeknd.
As an artist of the 2020s, IRYS has it all: Not only does she write her own songs, she also produces, mixes and
masters. The decision to go DIY came after an unpleasant collaboration with a producer that left the
singer/songwriter disheartened- at first.

 

Soon, IRYS learned the craft herself and started doing things her way.
Influenced by Berlin's electro scene, she switched her guitar for electronic synths and beats while staying true

to her hooky songwriting, thus creating her musical fingerprint.

 

After receiving only good critique for her first three independently released singles earlier this year, it will be

exciting to see what's next for this multi-talented artist!
