Hear the Devastating Doomgaze of IRESS “Underneath”


There’s an ethereal quality to Iress‘ music that makes me feel like I’m floating in an energetic primordial ocean, being called to my next journey by a voice made of pure light. I’m listening to their new single “Underneath” off their album Flaw that comes out later this year, produced and recorded by Sarah Tudzin. This is magical, devastatingly beautiful doomgaze that perfectly blends feminine strength with masculine power to create something that feels like a cosmic shift to a superb way of being. And I’m not talking about women and men, I’m talking about the energies that exist in everything and that have been way out of whack for centuries. It’s like with “Underneath” Iress is giving us a sonic roadmap to utopia – but it’s not a destination without pain or suffering, instead it’s a destination with balance and integrity. This track has me really excited to hear the full album. Listen to our stream of “Underneath” right here, and pre-order Flaw right here.

‘Underneath’ is about the desire to give into self destructive patterns to feel numb, falling headfirst into that dark place that can be both scary and comforting. “So inviting, I dive, blue and bent”, I imagine walking slowly into the sea and letting it engulf me.
