Iron Jinn / Iress - plus support

Iron Jinn are Oeds Beydals (The Devil’s Blood/Molassess/Death Alley), Wout Kemkens (Shaking Godspeed/De

Niemanders), Bob Hogenelst (Birth of Joy/Molassess) and Gerben Bielderman (Pauw) and their debut full length

on Stickman Records (21st of April 2023) is a frantic album that follows the logic of a dream; none. The album

releaseparty was held at Roadburn Festival 2023 in a packed Green Room, a week later the band played

Desertfest London and Sonic Whip festival followed by own clubshows. The first albumreviews are in and

Rockhard Magazine, OOR magazine, Visions Magazine, Aardschok magazine and others unanimously praise

the ambitious debut and Distorted Sound dubbed them as ‘masters of strange and etherial psychedelia’.

Iress - The sonic equivalent of standing on a beach as a tidal wave approaches, listening to Iress is to be aware of certain devastation and yet grateful to witness something so terrifyingly beautiful, transfixed by what happens next. Drawing inspiration from dark, yet commanding elements including metal, shoegaze, and slowcore, their music presents a cinematic crescendo that swells with intensity and wanes with sorrow.

Iress formed in the musical crucible of Los Angeles in 2010. Frontwoman Michelle Malley, dubbed "the Adele of Doom” by LA music peers, possesses vocals that range from an enveloping smokey warmth to anguished belting, revealing an emotional depth that arrests with unbelievable restraint and control. The band, comprised of bassist Michael Maldonado, drummer Glenn Chu, and guitarist Graham Walker, have fostered a chemistry that translates seamlessly to the stage. Their live performances are intentional and dynamic, leaving audiences stunned to silence, moved to tears, and immersed in a satisfying amount of crushing distortion.
