IORA’s latest offering "Nylon" slides perfectly into an indie electronic-pop aesthetic with each layer of instrumentation intentional and sleek. The track is built up and broken down with elements that won’t let your focus drift- tight drums and a thick bass with guitars and synths that twinkle around your ears are the real standout of this track. Not to mention IORA’s vocal performance which is both engaging and dynamic.
The track joins other releases that surround mental health and working through the stresses and pressures of life. IORA explains “Nylon is about a battle between internal opposing forces”. It’s a song that champions self-acceptance and understanding, finding emotional balance. In the realm of mental health discussions, "Nylon" emerges as a vital participant, acknowledging the inescapable pressures entwined with challenging times. Yet, IORA ventures into this terrain armed with uplifting and cathartic melodies, crafting a musical journey that evokes hope and healing.
The artist’s next steps see her taking the stage alongside her band throughout Manchester and London before moving on to performing ‘Nylon’ and others at the Croissant Neuf stage at Glastonbury. An interesting artist with exciting moments on the horizon, it will be exciting to see where IORA goes next.
