About Roy's Iron DNA

Formed in the earliest years of the 21st century, ROY’S IRON DNA soon found a place within the then thriving Edinburgh electronic music scene. Having undergone a number of changes in personnel over the last decade, as well as a relocation which noted a move away from the Scottish capital and towards the quaint border town of Berwick-upon-tweed (hometown of founding/only remaining original member Ian S. Thompson), ROY’S IRON DNA remain as formidable as ever, taking their own good time to continue to churn out some of northern Britain’s best loved electronica. Now comprising of a full scale live band, Roy’s has never looked, or for that matter sounded so good in this environment. And, with a fairly extensive back-catalogue comprising of one highly acclaimed album (2007’s ‘men in wax jackets’), not to mention a string of borderline seminal EP’s and singles to draw upon during their increasingly common live appearances, the outfit is ready to reclaim its place as a major head. Intuitive and firm artistic direction is something that ROY’S IRON DNA make look easy; with new material never acting to isolate that which came previous, yet always embodying pure and undeniable progress. A truly timeless enterprise, ROY’S IRON DNA is about one thing- evolution. “music for toasting yourself after a heavy night in Ibiza. Great with headphones, it lifts you off and gently deposits you in a bed filled with soothing aftersun”. - The Daily Record “successfully blended musical ideas from the psychedelic 60s, the punk era, right through to contemporary electronica. This is a VERY interesting band.” - Record Collector "Roy’s Iron DNA flex their muscles from song to song, transforming into a burly electro beast at every step. Nice samples and de-tuned piano effects give a summery feel to some of their songs, and Eagles-like slide guitar only adds to this Californian vibe. Imagine some West Coast 70s FM rock band found a time machine, came to 2014, stole some laptops and Autechre records, went back to the 1970s, and recorded some tracks in a beach hut. It might sound like this crazy mash of influences – 70s rock mixed with bleeps, gurgles, detached vocal effects, synth rumbles and 8-bit swooshes". Isthismusic.com "Roy's Iron DNA move towards Talking Heads/Hot Chip punk-funk territory, with smooth vocals and tight, complex drums, and occasional forays towards the kind of slick, post-modern R 'n' B traded in by the likes of How To Dress Well."
