Between songs, these guys were all smiles, joking around and having a great time, but their music is the furthest thing from casual. Sure, the lyrics bounce with a periodic tinge of sarcasm, but the instrumentation, melodic arrangements and three part harmonies exhibit a deliberate and meticulous approach to songwriting. At times, it feels kind of post-punk Fleet Foxes; methodically crafted pieces that have a purposeful ebb and flow, always flirting with the edge of overindulgence, but held together by Trela's composed delivery and earnest lyrics. There's a certain sincerity to it all that seems to grow on you more and more with each listen.

Nathan Quiroga and Benjamin Verdoes spent nearly every day of the past three years writing their first album. Songwriters, poets, and multi-instrumentalists, they pushed one another to unlearn roles and approached the process of composition from a place of intuition and selflessness. By all accounts Even the Sun Will Burn is the product of this intense collaboration and exploration. No two songs were written using the same formula: lyrically, melodically, and texturally, each is unwavering, fulfilling, and complete.
Irontom emerged in early 2012 forging a presence on the Los Angeles music scene. With influences ranging from Arctic Monkeys to Led Zeppelin, the music exhibits a variety of styles and sounds on top of a classic songwriting sensibility. The five band members combine to form an undeniably powerful and energetic sound. The band will be performing songs off their recently finished full length album produced and mixed by Alain Johannes (Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Chris Cornell).
