Iris Lune weaves through grief and loss on new track "Note to Self"

Mother’s Day can be a surprisingly reflective holiday — wherein we not only celebrate moms, but perhaps consider the necessary sacrifices inherent to parenthood. Songwriter Iris Lune commemorates her own late mother in new track “Note to Self,” released yesterday, in manners electronic and folky. A tactile, innovative indie pop single with elements evocative of Passion Pit, its instrumentals dramatically build to an explosive, emotive tribute, lyrically detailing grief and loss amongst punching drums and glittering synth. Such an effort serves well hidden nature of this past Sunday, and makes for a sentimental (and at times, soul stirring) listen; stream it below (and call your mom), and keep an eye out for Lune’s forthcoming LP lovelosslove dropping June 5th.

Iris Lune brings alt-electronic to The Knit on 10.10

Brooklyn quartet Iris Lune seemingly transcends their indie-electronic sound in their new single, "Sewing Skylines to Shores" (streaming below), an engaging track built around a modern and rather dramatic pop production, featuring textural synths and intense soulful vocals. The song marks an electronic departure from their debut self-titled EP which sustained a calm and indie-pop vibe throughout. The quartet will play The Kniting Factory on October 10. - Tafari Lemma

Edgy, all NYC bill at Rough Trade on 12.11: Iris Lune, Arthur Moon & Nozart

Born in Boston as the project of singer-songwriter Ella Joy Meir and guitarist and composer Asher Kurtz, Iris Lune is now a Brooklyn based quartet, and plays expansive, mellow pop with ambient influences and jazzy inclinations. In single 'Triplets' (video streaming below) the band utilizes atmospheric vocal samples and electric piano to create a fluid drone on which Ella's mellow vocals float adrift. Iris Lune will be performing at Rough Trade on December 11 with two other interesting and like-minded local acts: Arthur Moon and Nozart.
