Iris Gold now based in London was born in the UK but raised in Freetown Christiana commune in Copenhagen. With childhood influences of 60’s hippy sounds, 70’s psychedelia and hand me down hip- hop LP’s her sound was destined to be ecletic cool.
And cool it is. It’s a perfect laid back summer tune. It conjures pictures of teenagers hanging out on sunny city streets, like something from a early 90’s hip hop video. The sound though is fresh and modern but with just enough of a retro vibe. That little whistle through the chorus is so cool its now been added to my favourites, the hand clap or finger click.
Having already supported Blur, Robbie Williams and Ms Swifty herself this summer, this year looks set to be big for Ms Gold.
