Fresh sounds from Bergen: iris (Iris Caltwait) is a singer that is managed by MADE Management – a constant source of good music from the city in the west of Norway.
iris wrote about the song: “ i wrote it with my beautiful friend Askjell Solstrand last december, after spending a month in paris, and in many ways this song captures one of the most important experiences i’ve had in the past year. i realized both my endless desire for a deep connection and also the beauty and grief knowing the impossibility of truly ever finding it. its like sometimes i feel a moment is magical, but then i look over at the person next to me, and i know we’re not seeing the same thing. we dont feel the same thing. „
It is a catchy dreamy slow-pop-ballad with haunting vocals and you can surely hear the references of Askjells songwriting and producing power in it: Warm and soft synth-sounds dominate soundwise. A good start with a good song.
