No corners cut with Iris Hill’s newest release.

Israeli indie rockers return with hard hitting single ‘Cutting Corners’

Iris Hill create hard hitting anthems that draw influences from the mid-to-late 00’s indie-rock scene, for fans of artists as diverse as Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand, as well as Arctic Monkeys. This four-piece are not your usual band hailing from Sheffield, Manchester or Leeds, but instead Netanya, Israel. Ever since their inception, the band have performed at some of Israel’s most iconic venues, charming their audiences with astonishing grooves and emphatic guitar lines.

‘Cutting Cornersis a euphoric, indie rock track about wanting to take the easy route in life. Following the success of their debut single produced by Noam Levinberg, the band have kept their strong and gritty sound, with the combination of melodic tones, guitar riffs and those gigantic hooks we all crave.

Blurring the lines between various genres and influences once more, the song resonates with people in all walks of life, with immediate lyrics describing wanting to ‘have fun’ and of course ‘cut corners’, a catchy, light-hearted message with a serious guitar driven undertone. Ending on an explosive, high energy solo, this is typical of the bands work to date and will keep audiences hooked throughout.
