New Video: Berlin’s IRYS Returns with a Sultry New Bop

IRYS is an emerging, Berlin-based singer/songwriter and producer, who specializes in what she describes as dark electro pop with a note of retro and synth wave. She released her first single earlier this and currently has plans to release one single a month throughout the rest of the year. 

Back in May, the emerging Berlin-based artist released “River,” a track that featured her sultry vocals over a slick and modern production featuring shimmering synth arpeggios, skittering twitter and woofer rocking beats and a propulsive bass line to create a mid-tempo track that reminded me — to my ears, at least — of Version 2.0 Garbage.

IRYS’ latest single “Warriors” prominently features her sultry vocals over a darkly seductive and atmospheric production featuring skittering beats, layers of synth arpeggios, buzzing bass synths paired with an infectiously anthemic hook. And while continuing a run of slickly produced pop “Warriors” sees IRYS expanding upon her sound — there’s still clear elements of Version 2.0-era Garbage but the new single may be the most dance floor friendly of her growing catalog.

The recently released video continues an ongoing collaboration with VI productions: the video is split between footage of the rising Berlin-based artist vamping and looking seductive while shot with dreamy filters — and computerized landscapes.
