We love the defiant up-tempo sound of Danish soul-pop artist Iris Gold‘s latest single ‘All I Really Know’. Recently featured on Afropunk, Complex Magazine, Wonderland and Elle Magazine; it’s clear that Iris’ talent is as strong and precious as the metal she shares her surname with.
By blending retro hp-hop, soul, and power pop with a “generous sprinkle of flower power”, Irish Gold has managed to create a funky, uplifting anthem about self belief. Speaking about the new track, Iris explains: When you’ve been dealing with adversity throughout your life, it will either kill you, or make you blossom into a positive person – and I decided very early on in life that I would always be positive, energetic, and a go-getter. ‘All I Really Know’ is my Rocky Balboa/Apollo Creed track. It’s a song about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and trying again, after failing, no matter how many attempts it takes.”
Originally from London and raised in Copenhagen, Iris has lived a nomadic life surrounded by free thinkers growing up in hippy communes and squates, 60’s 70’s counterculture, elements that has made her the unique, charismatic artist she is today.
