Iress: Ricochet

One of the most anticipated returns in the world of heavy shoegaze and beyond, finally starts to unfold, as Los Angeles-based doomgazers, Iress, deliver their killer new track, Ricochet. The song is the first reveal off the band's upcoming EP, Solace, arriving on May 12th, 2023 from the eclectic roster of Dune Altar.

"I feel emotional every time I sing Ricochet," says frontwoman, Michelle Malley. "I started writing it a couple years back during a really rough time in my life. When the band got their hands on it, it really transformed into something powerful. It’s a song about loss and anguish and the journey to self discovery and acceptance."

The Solace EP represents the harsh truth of change, which is both inescapable and exquisite, and Ricochet brings a massive supply of emotionality. Impressive and unquestionably a worthy continuation of the band's great 2020 album Flaw, the new song is an absolute standout.

Iress are composed of Michelle Malley (vocals, guitar), Michael Maldonado (bass), Glenn Chu (drums) and new member, Graham Walker (guitar).
