UK Artist of the Week: IYEARA

Ready for something dark and ominous to get you going on this fine Tuesday? No? Are you sure? Because IYEARA are certainly a band you need to sit up and take note of, even if they are rather intimidating…

The trio have just released their debut EP “Consequences,” which includes the brooding single “Exhale,” a track that is swarming with haunting soundscapes and driving synths, along with vocalist Paul O’Keefe’s distinctive tone sending shivers down one’s spine instantly.

The single also comes with an equally disturbing video directed by Sam Dixon and featuring footage taken from the short film Old Mate. IYEARA combine dark wave and post-punk sensibilities throughout this dynamic debut, creating a sound that is both accomplished and forward-thinking.

The trio is composed of The Duke Spirit guitarist Toby Butler, as well as producer Malcolm Carson and not forgetting Paul O’Keeffe. Together they have created somewhat of a super group and right now it seems like the sky is the limit for IYEARA. Throughout the EP, the trio are joined by a select batch of guests including The Duke Spirit’s leading lady Liela Moss covering Tears For Fears’ hit single “Shout.” What more could you ask for?

“Consequences” is in stores now via TrES-2b Recordings / Ingrooves.
