“RIOT” by Irys

Since starting her project in 2021, Berlin-based singer, songwriter, and producer IRYS has quickly been named as one of the most impressive dark pop newcomers internationally captivating fans and critics with her dark aura and gift for creating remarkable songs.

The up-and-coming starlet has since been compared to big names like Grimes, CharliXCX, Tove Lo, and Lana Del Rey. Fusing elements of indie electronica, neo-goth, and trip-hop, IRYS creates her own brand of dark, edgy electro-pop, uniting the sonic rawness of the Berlin underground with effortlessly catchy hooks.

In her latest single “Riot” on July 17, 2022, IRYS declares herself a formidable force to be reckoned with in the dark-pop scene. To experience listening to the gothic-inspired musician is to allow yourself to succumb to the delirious dreamscape the track has created.

Pulsating with the hollowed-out energy of great classic score mixed with bubbly pop hooks in songs, a strong contender for song of the year, the score is intoxicating in its narrative misery, haunted in how it clings to your skin after experiencing. It is, without a doubt, one of the most startlingly assured full-length gems in years, a signifier of an immense talent that is yet under her profile.
