about

IRAH’s debut mini-album has been recorded in two European cities, Side A in a church in Copenhagen and Side B in Berlin at the former East German broadcasting corporation.

“We needed to get away from Copenhagen and went to Berlin. We recorded 4 tracks in Funkhaus Berlin - the former East German broadcasting corporation which today houses a lot of recording studios. The place was being renovated, which meant that we were the only ones there. It was an extremely atmospheric experience; we had traveled to a different time. Outside summer flourished. It was magical to record music in this environment.” says singer Stine Grøn

trademarks of IRAH; a dramatic composition culminating in an intense outro; Oliver Louis Brostrøm’s dynamic and fascinating drum-playing; the waves of synthesizer-sounds created by Adi Zukanović that moves in and out of the song’s texture; and finally Stine Grøn’s impressive vocal range and crystal clear timbre singing an homage to the spiritual essence of love itself.

The title track “Into Dimentions”, born out of an hour-long improvisation, was the first material IRAH ever made together; a collective inhalation and exhalation. Originating from the experience of leaving the body and letting the soul travel into the universe, the song captures the feeling of seeing the world from the outside for a brief moment; to distance one's self from cultural structures and feeling authentic and in symbiosis with one's original form; an experience of connectedness with all that lives.

Another stand-out track is “Mirroring”, an alternative pop tune carried by heavy synths, a driving drum-beat and a powerful vocal performance by Stine Grøn. The track starts out softly and reaches its climax in an epic choir arrangement while the drums continue their driving beat right until the end.

IRAH’s 8-track mini-album takes the listeners on an epic journey across the universe with an impressive spiritual sensitivity and emotional depth. Their play and sing masterfully and the future is looking promosing for IRAH.

Track Name: Fast Travelling
Love is a spirit, seen and unseen
The seed of the universe
Love is my answer, when I see you
Purifies, enlightens
It is free, yet it binds me
Can't be broken, when we separate

It is on the inside, it is on the outside
It is on the inside, it is on the outside

Do you receive it, when it's given
From somewhere, beyond the atmosphere
Do you see it, in your companion
Vibrational euphoria

It is on the inside, it is on the outside
Fast travelling, fast travelling
Track Name: Above My Knees
Above my knees I have still got my flesh
Hands to wipe off all my tears
Never knew that you would take so much of me
A heartache that became a blessing
A call that led me to believe again
Invisible wonders carry me

I’m better off on my own, better off on my own
Only living feels better with someone like you

Above my knees I have still got my flesh
Hands to wipe off all my tears
How did I ever get so hollow
I am crust without my fruit
Track Name: Moon
Come back moon, challenge me tonight
Feel this need, do emerge
Help me rewind, take back the time
Show me all my memories

Talk to the shadow, read the palm of my hand
Feel my pulse, my beating heart
Share my thought

Link our kingdom
Hear my persuading heart, reconnect sources
Ocean of colour
Let our handshake melt into
Gravitational waves

Distant but yet so visible
Lightyears between us, millions of stars
Still we're the same, layer by layer we are shaped
Somehow alike

I'm in your light, in your light
Enamoured, I want to make it last
Track Name: Into Dimensions
Sent out into space
Never ending frame
Universe before my eyes, my eyes
Another galaxy
Colouring my ride
Somewhere in between
I'm free, I'm free
I want to meet the invisible me
Can't be haunted enough
To wake up and see
This is not the only reality
That is loading

I fall into dimensions
This is it, that is all that I know All that I know

Humankind is young
Sleeping with their eyes open
Closed down higher thought It feels wrong,
So wrong that I

I am an ocean
The ocean is in my eye
My being is your being
Your being is my being
Track Name: Showering Layers off My Skin
What is underneath, what is underneath that mask
Lips are painted red, brows covered in blue
Hands o
Oranges in line, horses on command

Rears
O my mind again, took o in a split second ...
Showering layers o my skin
Bursting bubbles wet the floor
Carried away
Enlightened in open ocean Water flow

Waiting for the stars, waiting, wanting stars to show
Landing in my hand, make me understand their link
Little lemon balls, roll all over the floor
Sighs

Whirling in the storm
Taken back in time, press play
Dancing in the eye, black hole in the sky
Squeezed
Goes through everything, I am spirit again
Light
Beaten by the air, so self aware
Still
Track Name: Mirroring
I am silver
I am rat
I will swallow whatever I find
Mirror be kind
In dislike
Or in love
Truthfully
I will accept whatever I find
In my eyes
Deep within
Purple pearls rolling inside
Six-cornered flakes
Face meditation
Separation
Then frustration
Lost outside

How come we don’t like ourselves more
How come we accept self hatred

See me
Touch me
Furry hair, looking lion to me
Tease me
Watch me
Blowing leaves out of my mouth again

Now she's awake
Protecting her honey
Then she quietly hums her song
Do not hunt
This clever queen
Let her live another year
Let her conceive
We deny our true selves don't we ...
