Smooth electronica, minimalistic melodies, and a sweeping ocean of synths – that is iris’ latest single Mercy. Like the sun slowly rising over icy mountains, this track builds towards the gentle, yet, strong peak drawing you into the song like a dark force. Mercy shows the punchy and more aggressive side of the singer, who was previously known for her sweet and vulnerable debut EP a sensitive being. The Norwegian artist sings of having a tendency for getting herself into disastrous relationships. ‘Not that the people I date are horrible, but it never works out. I still have fun’ iris comments on coming to terms with her unlucky love life. Wrapped into the foggy coat of warm and intoxicating electronica, iris shows raw emotion on a matured single, coming from a 22-year-old.
