Lay with you
New Zealand’s Iris has evolved from her soft-spoken and fragile indie sound in previous singles into a soulful and unapologetic pop powerhouse with the arrival of her first studio album. She describes her transformation as “shedding layers” which is apparent in her warm and relatable, yet dancey new single “Lay with you” from the debut album.
The song is a sensual anthem that nods to the simple things in love – finding that unique touch and connection that feels so good, it could only be a miracle. Iris highlights the rarity and complexity of that perfect match that somehow feels unmistakably effortless. Underpinned by iridescent keys and slick claps, the track swings from intimate verses towards a luminous and lush hook. Coy confessions like—“Feeling sensual I can’t deny, you give me that all the time”—lead into a soulful choral chant, “Up until the dawn, baby when you lay with me.”
Lay With You was produced by Charles Lutman, with co-production from Iris.

Iris is a breakout pop artist hailing from the small town of Napier, New Zealand.
She grew up listening to the classics; Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, but later turned to Rihanna, Post Malone, Kanye West and Ariana Grande; all of which influence her music today. A songwriter at heart, Iris knew she was bound for something greater than her small town when she won the New Zealand Peace Song Competition and flew to Hiroshima, Japan to perform at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and teach music classes. Soon after, she was offered a contract from Universal Music New Zealand, but turned it down in hopes of pursuing her career in Los Angeles as an independent artist.
Her song Dangerous, released in July of 2019, amassed over 4.5 Million views on YouTube and 250k streams on Spotify. The now 21 year old singer has embraced the evolution of her sound and self with her up-coming debut album.
“I want to go deeper with what I do,” “Songs can make you feel a certain way. I want every song to emanate a feeling.” With over 7 million total views and streams on her music independently, she further opens up her world to a ready and willing audience in 2020.
