Iris Gold spun heads earlier this summer with her debut track ‘Goldmine’ a colourful and infectious amalgamation of party hip-hop and sunshine pop. With shows supporting Blur and Taylor Swift at Hyde Park, she proved she can command attention on the big stage as effortlessly as she can pen a pop hook.
Now comes a new transmission from Iris with ‘Color Trip’. Presenting a more soulful and sultry facet of her sound, it’s a mesmerising slow jam with a guitar solo channeling the spirit of Lauryn Hill’s ‘Ex-Factor’. The idiosyncratic lyrics about incense, magic crystals, flowers and all around hippie vibes (“basically what I’m into” says Iris) also correspond with her unique biography.
