Left Iris

Alternative // Inchicore, Dublin

Left Iris is an exciting new Irish/Spanish trio formed in Dublin in late 2023. Drawing from an array of genres, they create a blend of Pop music inspired by Shoegaze, Alternative rock and Electronica. The results are singable, melodic tunes wrapped in layers of guitars, harmonies and synthesisers. 

2023 saw the release of two singles, the jangly Shoegaze infused ‘New Room’, and ethereal Power Pop tune ‘Crash’. After founding member Finn O'Reilly assembled the live band towards the end of the year, the group debuted in Workman’s, with further performances in St Maur’s Church and the Cobblestone.

While the project is still in its infancy, Left Iris have already collaborated with UK musicians Charlotte Hatherley (formerly of Ash, Bryan Ferry, Bat For Lashes) and Drummer Alex Thomas (Anna Calvi, Air, Bloc Party, Squarepusher).

The new year has seen the release of Electronic laden single ‘Synthia’, the strongest, most hooky release to date. The track has proven to be the group's most successful and engaging release to date, enjoying extensive playlisting as well as airtime on 2fm, 96fm and appearing on Goldenplec and The Thin Air.

Left Iris have lately performed headline shows in Dublin's Anseo, The Loft Galway, Sin É, Fibbers with the band's biggest show to date in the Workman's Cellar booked for July.

Not content to stop there, the group returned to the studio in April, with their new single 'Always' and a plethora of shows and support slots to come soon, including London shows planned for Summer.
