Iris was recorded in Reykjavik’s Greenhouse studios by Australian émigré sound artist and engineer Ben Frost, and mixed by Valgeir Sigurðsson (Camille, Björk, Bonnie Prince Billy). The five songs focus on the unique resonant sound of the steel pan – vocalist Mariam Wallentin’s current musical passion.
Iris explores the motifs of water, reflection and surface light with an unusual sonic texture and production quality, and this aquatic theme links it to it's partner EP, Retina.
