Alternative rock band IRIS have stood their ground well with the ’Out of Fiction' EP. This is the first of two great releases by Iris on Engineer Records, both packed with songs as memorable as they are powerful, so you'll be singing them all day long. 

 

1, Out of fiction

2, Your sacrifice

3, The shade

4, Long walk to sleep

5, Lie for me

6, Thicker than water (acoustic)

 

The opening song, also sharing its name with the EP title, is definitely a signature track on the record. Starting along a path of lively sounds with transition into second track ’Your Sacrifice,‘ IRIS show that they’re more than capable of producing fun loving, easy listening rock music.

The EP strays away from this energetic path and follows a softer route with third track ’The Shade,’ successfully combining calmer verses and powerful choruses but not losing the enthusiasm presented at the beginning of the record.

The infectious riffs in ‘Long Walk to Sleep’ and ’Lie for Me’ raise the standard of the EP and are an example of IRIS playing their cards right in creating lively rock songs, a skill that continues to shows their success in writing music.

Acoustic track ‘Thicker than Water’ rounds the record off nicely, where proof of harmonised vocals and beautifully crafted guitar sections compliment IRIS’ talent and presenting their well rounded ability.

The band has proven that they can mix energy with tranquillity in this record and IRIS is definitely worthy of praise for creating an easy listening but animated EP.
