US duo Iris has always been respected in synthpop circles and anticipation is high when they they are about to release their new album. “Radiant” has been delayed but is now 3 weeks away (October 24, Europe, October 28 USA).
I have listened to “Radiant” for a while and it’s not likely fans will be disppointed. In fact, Iris might even find some new ones with this one. The album has a very electronic and laidback, yet powerful sound with strong, mature songs. Review in progress.
It is released in regular and “complete” editions; the latter is a limited edition of 500 copies with gatefold vinyl and 2 digipak CD:s, including the “Phenom” EP. “Phemom” is one of my favourites on the album.
Iris – Reagan Jones and Andrew Sega – toured with Seabound earlier this year.
