Decent Music PR Limited

Anglo-American indie pop-rock sensation IONA SKY, renowned for their captivating blend of pop, country, and indie-rock influences, are about to drop their new single, "Locked The Door".

Crafted with heartfelt lyricism and dreamy melodies, "Locked The Door" encapsulates the bittersweet essence of love's demise, navigating through the complexities of guilt, justification, and ultimate surrender. Lead vocalist Anna-Sophia Henry, alongside guitarist/vocalist James Malone, delve into the depths of emotion, weaving a narrative that resonates with listeners on a profound level.

Reflecting on the song's inspiration, the band shares, "Locked the Door is a happy sad song. It marks the finality of a relationship ending - describing the guilt, the justification, and finally, surrender of a loved one and then setting a firm boundary. The melancholy lyrics of this song are counterbalanced by the light, summer-like trills of the guitar which offers a dreamy retrospective feel to it." The track, initially conceived from the perspective of the wronged party, evolved into a poignant portrayal of introspection and acceptance from the perpetrator's viewpoint.

Throughout the creative process, Anna-Sophia and James meticulously honed the song's narrative, exchanging ideas and refining lyrics in a collaborative effort that underscores the band's commitment to authenticity and storytelling. "Locked The Door" emanates an aura of timelessness, characterized by its evocative simplicity and melodic allure, destined to resonate with audiences far and wide. As a band, IONA SKY loves and strives for the timeless, classic feel of simple dress, anthemic songs, and minimal post-production - and they feel strongly that Locked the Door is a song that will stick around.

The single serves as a prelude to IONA SKY's debut EP, 'Homeschooled', a musical odyssey exploring themes of love, boundaries, and personal growth. Each track within the EP offers a poignant lesson drawn from the band members' collective experiences, inviting listeners to embark on a journey of introspection and self-discovery.

As IONA SKY embarks on a UK/Ireland tour to promote 'Homeschooled' and graces the stages of prominent festivals including Equinox, Strawberry Fair, and St. Ives Music Festival, they remain steadfast in their dedication to making music that transcends boundaries and resonates with the soul.

Experience the raw emotion and timeless allure of "Locked The Door" and join IONA SKY on their musical journey as they redefine the indie pop-rock landscape one heartfelt melody at a time.
