Los Angeles band Iress has just released the music video for »Ricochet«, the first single off their upcoming EP »Solace«, and the band’s first release since their critically lauded 2020 album »Flaw«. The new music video was filmed in the mountains just outside of LA at The Pale Moon Ranch recording studio, where the band recorded their upcoming EP »Solace« with owner/engineer Alex Estrada (Touché Amoré, Deaf Club, Joyce Manor).
Iress’ music is the sonic equivalent of standing on a beach as a tidal wave approaches – aware of certain devastation, yet grateful to witness something so terrifyingly beautiful, and transfixed in anticipation for whatever happens next. Formed in Los Angeles in 2010, Iress employ dark, commanding elements of shoegaze, slowcore and metal, swelling in moments of cinematic-like crescendo. Dubbed the “Adele of Doom” by her local LA music peers, frontwoman Michelle Malley’s vocals have the power to envelop with smokey warmth, destroy with anguished belting, and arrest with unbelievable restraint.
»Solace« will be available on May 12, 2023 via Dune Altar.
