‘Glitter Vision’ – Lucky Iris
Lucky Iris are an alt pop duo who have put their own personal spin on the resurgence of electro-acoustic music, resulting in the production of a set on intimate silky tunes with a fresh aesthetic. The pair started their band with a bang, releasing their debut EP “Turns Out We Should Have Stayed at Home” (25/04/2020). The EP is actually a concept EP based around a night on the town, and how sometimes they don’t go to plan and it may be better to stay home…
The duo take influence from a broad range of sounds and have previously been likened to Celeste, and Shura, taking further influence from Alt-J and Laura Mvula, but you will have to go see them to make your own judgement.
As former members of the Leeds outfit Everyday People, both Maeve and Jasper have experience in the Leeds music scene. Together with their previous bands they have accumulated gigs all over the city, including venues such as the infamous Brudenell Social Club as well as Headlingley Verity Stadium. The pair have a passion for the local scene and are exited to launch their news project Lucky Iris.
‘Full Moon’ – Maeve Steele
Pop-Noir songstress and blue-velvet vocalist Maeve Steele revives the timeless iconography that redefined commercial music. Born and raised in the larger-than-life Bay Area, CA, Maeve Steele was baptized by San Francisco’s paradigmatic summer of love melodies, captivated by counter-culture pioneers and rock n’ roll originators. Immersed in a haven for untamed creative souls, Maeve’s artistry was driven by a synergy of folk, rock, hip-hop, soul and new-wave pop.
Her innate, uncompromising and eclectic love of music led her to become a classically trained violinist, later learning to play guitar and piano. Boasting intoxicating, cocktail-pop instrumentation and effortless swagger, Maeve holds the written word to a sanctified standard. A champion on behalf of raw realism, Steele’s lyricism allows universality to sound extraordinary, adorning plain-spoken poetry with progressive pop production. Her debut project MAEVE STEELE—a dual single release—allows her skill to speak for itself. Alongside emerging producer Cole Phillips and Grammy-nominated engineer Robert Venable (Twenty One Pilots, Kelly Clarkson), Maeve Steele established herself as a major player with the singles “Real” and “Tourist”. Steele’s next era will begin with “No Control”—the leading track from her upcoming sophomore project.
