Is This Really Me – The Iron Door
As the dead leaves fall off the trees and darkness stretches for the most part of the day, I find myself longing for some mellow, heartfelt, folky tunes. This why I’m so pleased to stumble upon The Iron Door, the debut album by Helsinki band Is This Really Me (yes, this really is the band’s name). The clean guitars, the soft melodies and vocal harmonies are a ray of sunshine and a warm breeze that will help you through these cold nights. Add to that a few songs tinged with flowering psychedelia thanks to acid organ and spaced-out sounds and it all makes a very compelling album.
The Iron Door is already available on a nice LP/CD combo, featuring a beautiful cover. Listen to a couple of tracks below.
