Leeds based synthpop duo Lucky Iris return with the “Blowing Kisses” single, which is the last single before releasing their upcoming EP “Maybe I’m too much”, which will be out on August 11th.

The single was written and produced by the duo, mixed by Richard Wilkinson (Adele, Kaiser Chiefs) and mastered by Antony Ryan (Oh Wonder).

There are three tracks on the EP, the 2 previous singles from the band plus the new track “Blowing Kisses”.

Speaking on the track frontwoman Maeve says: “I overheard someone say; ‘a crush is just a lack of information’, and I just couldn’t get that out of my head – but I refuse to see a crush as just that because it just takes all the fun out of it, doesn’t it?! ‘blowing kisses’ is about having a crush. It’s about that point where it turns into something more, because unlike that stranger implied, the more information you learn about your crush, the more you end up falling for them. It’s about hanging on every word they say, being out and only being able to see them. And when they say your name, that feeling you get each time, it’s like the first time anyone has ever said your name… I guess it’s an ‘if you know you know’ feeling… if you do you’ll understand and if not, know it’s a precious song about being desperate to know what that other person is thinking.”

Jasper (music) and Maeve (vocalist and lyrics) formed Lucky Iris during the lockdown period and since them have released several singles.

Below is the newest single.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
