Watch & Listen
Iris Temple is a band that accentuates the relationship between how you take in information and how you perceive it through music. The soulful duo from Kansas City met in high school band class and found mutual passion for creating narratives and environments out of lyrics, rhythms, chords, and the synthesis of those elements. Quinn Cochran and Quinn Regan create music where synthetic and natural sounds meet, mixing live and digital for an enveloping type of sound.
From serenading peers in physics class and working out of a makeshift studio in Quinn Cochran’s dad’s electronic business every night until 3 or 4 AM, each eventually made their way to Chicago to get serious about the projects they were working on. They began seeing organic traction on Spotify and signed to MOON, a management company. Iris Temple aims to have an impact on the movement and the arch of music, to show people you don’t have to follow all the “rules” of music - you learn those rules so you can remake them. Based on the belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue their dreams and what they want to do, they are passionate about preserving the history of communities and creating awareness of social constructs. All to help people think outside of their sphere through awareness that all people’s experiences are equally important.
Taking the ugly and painting it pretty, the self-proclaimed “sad happy rap princess” pinkcaravan! has a knack for tackling tougher subjects with the wit and innocence of an inquisitive child. Her executive producer Namesake.’s beats transforms her melancholy topics into palatable & sonically vibrant tracks - the “pink” to her grandfather’s old “caravan” she currently drives and inspiration for her artist name.
Hailing from St. Louis, pinkcaravan! began turning her poetry into rhymes in 2016. In March 2017, she teamed up with Namesake. to release her “a very sad happy birthday” EP on her 21st birthday.
Her biggest inspirations are Missy Elliott, Kanye West, Nelly, M.I.A. and Smino. pinkcaravan! wants herself and Namesake. to be similar to Missy & Timbaland - two of their biggest inspirations
