Building on musical backgrounds drenched in blues, metal, rock, pop, rap and funk, Stone Iris has tapped into a vein that employs intriguing elements from a diverse range of genres. “Our sound is a representation of us being victorious- rising above the norm, doing it our way… There are very few things that feel as good as being really into a song. It’s something like magic, not a substance or a drug… it’s so powerful, ” says El Niven the oldest member of the band. Big without being overbearing, intelligent without undue complexity, Stone Iris’s songs possess a strong melodic and rhythmic content that reflect the bands willingness to delve into life’s full palette of emotions.
