Originally from London and raised in Copenhagen, Iris has lived a nomadic life surrounded by free thinkers growing up in hippie communes and squats, 60's 70's counterculture, elements that has made her the unique, charismatic artist she is today. Against this backdrop of West Coast melody, she has since continued to expand her musical horizons after becoming enamoured with hip-hop acts such as Pete Rock, Beastie Boys and De La Soul. She has masterfully managed to merge these influences in her own music. Iris’ musical blend can best be described, according to The Guardian, as “deliciously summery and laid-back at a time when most pop seems to want to make you have a heart attack.”
