Berlin-based singer-songwriter and producer, IRYS, is back with another darkwave infused future-retro track, titled “Ride Or Die”. Featuring a bunch of big synthesizers and the singers signature vocals, her latest release is an uplifting headbanger that will immediately carry you to the techno clubs of Berlin.
“Ride Or Die”, with its deep basses and dark melodies creates a goth-like sonic space that best defines IRYS’ sound. Her unique approach to creating an eclectic mix of exciting electronics to accompany her hypnotic vocals makes the track stand out. With its engaging verses and intricately produced transitions, each element blends with the other excellently.
Her half-demon, half-angel persona is quite evident in her lyrics. She sings about the loss of feelings and the darkness that takes over sometimes. Her sultry vocal style creates a gloomy and shadowy space that fits in perfectly with the instrumentation of the track. – “Take my feelings, you take my feelings away, I’m fed up, running in the other way / See you in another life, you’re running but won’t arrive, don’t wanna be your ride or die, you’re ugly on the inside.”
After releasing four singles in 2021, “Ride Or Die” is another raw future-retro track added to her discography that has its own distinct colour; makes you want to close your eyes and embrace the dark side! Influenced by artists such as Boy Harsher, Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd, IRYS creates music independently, and from her unique perspective. Keeping true to the distinctive style of her songs, she is already making waves in the electronic music scene worldwide!
