The music intensifies after the first hook and the dripping black paint represents darkness cascading over your mind. Not maliciously though, it’s more of a benevolent nature. It empowers you to be unafraid of the unknown, to seek adventure and mystery. That’s why near the close of the track, he reappears defiant and re-birthed as something new, almost like an alien with royal-blue skin that sparkles. He has discovered depth. His explorer is fulfilled. Interweaving metaphorical lyricism into tenebrous soundscapes.
Agiris /’uh-gye-riss’/ is the pseudonym of poet Ryan Draper; born in 1995 and raised in Tredegar, South Wales. The name derives from the synthesis of iris and Ag; the periodic symbol for Silver. The color signifies mystery, intuition and his most habitual muse; the moon. Agiris summarizes the artist’s intent for broader perspectives and deeper exploration into the territory of the unknown.
