Ironess like to be “Comfortable”
Melbourne Indie-pop duo Ironess follow the success of their debut single “Drive”, with a new track, “Comfortable”: a carefree, R&B driven beauty. Opening with a neo-soul inspired guitar hook, this sets the tone for the duo’s warm hearfelt vocals which explore the emotions of being in a long term relationship, which begins to feel like a chore rather than love.
“Sometimes in a relationship, one person can outgrow or change and can end up at a crossroads trying to figure out what life looks like away from the sameness and comfort that a relationship can provide” Ironess explain. “We didn’t want Comfortable to be a one-sided story, because in the end it takes two to tango. This song digs deep into the emotions which sometimes you’re afraid to let out because you don’t want to hurt the other person’s feelings”.
In call and response style, the lyrics capture the thoughts of experiencing and talking through these challenges: Everytime we cross the same lines we lose ourselves again. Teaming up with Producer Mark D’Angelo (D’Arcy Spiller), the nostalgic, cross-genre song has its roots in soul and branches of polished pop. The song builds through R&B inspired melodies and by the second chorus transcends the expected to a captivating electro delight.
Ironess – made up of the collective talents of singer-songwriters KEZRA and Issac Main is an exciting independent, Melbourne duo project born out of folk roots infused with electro, indie pop vibes. The duo’s debut song “Drive”, released in July, has racked up more than 10,000 streams on Spotify alone, receiving local buzz from the likes of Triple J Unearthed and nationally-syndicated support from ABC Radio, Herald Sunand radio show Oz Made. Ironess will be releasing their EP later this year.
