I’m chuffed to announce that there will be a special acoustic performance from ÍRiS, an exciting and breath-taking songstress from Reykjavík, on the eve of the release of her album ‘PENUMBRA’ at the London launch of Iceland, Defrosted.
Her debut album is a continuation of her progression as a musician into alternative pop music. On the album she explores various musical contrasts by mixing together traditional instruments such as cello and piano with more contemporary electronic sounds. As well as experimenting the full range of sounds available from both instruments and items found in everyday life. From this process the title of the album was born, “Penumbra”, which stands for the region where complete shadow and illumination meet – where musical contrasts connect.
