The weekend forecast is looking to be a little warmer than these last few days (I tried to go out, I really did, but Netflix, blankets and hot toddies won over the seemingly impossible task of bundling up and trekking downtown). On Friday, I plan to be fully back at it, and there’s no better way to shake off the chill than with Greenville, SC’s Signs of Iris.
While seeing great indie bands come out of my hometown is invigorating in and of itself, I’ll be ditching my winter coat and heading to the front for Signs of Iris to put some step back into my frozen toes. With tight, driving dance beats, thick guitar licks, hyperactive synths and Cassie Posey’s dark & commanding vocals, Signs of Iris is a toughened-up, young Paramore with an uncompromising Death From Above 1979-esque spine.
Check out their second LP, Cyclops, which dropped in October, below; you’ll be ready to dance and wail along.
And check out Randy Garcia:
