Iran - "Buddy" EP

Iran consists of singer/multi-instrumentalist Aaron Aites, guitarist Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, guitarist Aaron Romanello (Grand Mal) and guitarist/bassist Peter Hoffman (The Mendoza Line). Their third full length "Dissolver" will be released in Feb. 2009 on Narnack Records. In the meantime, Nov. 4th will see the release of the "Buddy" EP that includes the song, "Buddy", also on "Dissolver" and a cover of the John Lennon song, "Isolation" as well as "Airport 77" which is the prelude to a song on Dissolver" called "Airport 79".

Showing a range of influences such as XTC, Brian Wilson, early Sebadoh, and similarities to Kyp's work in TV On The Radio, Aaron Aites and Iran create very catchy, skewed noise-pop...imagine a sticky bubblegum ball rolling under the couch, picking up dust and grime. Though prior output was more of the lo-fi variety, this time around producer David Andrew Sitek has added his famous touch to flesh out Iran's brand of bedroom pop. Check out "Buddy" below and look for "Dissolver" in early '09.
