On “Paper Mache”, Iris Lune‘s lead singer Ella Joy brings listeners on a vicarious journey through her mind.

As the track progresses, more layers of ornate electronic synth are introduced, and everything becomes wilier and more undone. Still, it’s Joy’s captivating vocals that remain the heart of the song and establish it as a scintillating listen. The story that she presents is dark as her character develops an illusory “paper mache love”, but it never feels hopeless.
