Hype List 2019: IDER

With a new year, comes the weight of expectation on a new batch of artists, thrust into the spotlight and expected to set the agenda for the twelve months ahead. That's what The Hype List is about - a series of interviews, profiles and more highlighting who we think will be making a noise in 2019.

London duo IDER have spent 2018 working on their debut album, a record that will no doubt be full of vibrant, take-on-the-world bangers, unafraid to challenge both ‘the state of things’, and the band themselves. 

Hey Lily and Meg, what are you up to today?
We’re sitting in our kitchen talking about tuna. We just got back from Paris having played Pitchfork Festival last night. 

We hear you’re working on your debut album, how’s it going? 
You heard right. It’s going well, thank you! We’re very much absorbed in the creative process at the moment, mostly at home in North London where we live together. Also, love being in and out of the studio - we’re working with some great producers who are bringing so much life to the process. We’re challenging ourselves, and it’s both tough and invigorating.

Is your new single ‘Mirror’ a good representation of what you’re working on at the mo?
Absolutely! In terms of our songwriting and our identity as a band - it’s very much part of this chapter. 

What would you most like to achieve with the album?
We want the album to be honest, vulnerable, empowering and to connect with people all over the world.

In what ways do you think the record will encapsulate 2019?
We are writing our album from the very honest perspective of two young women in their twenties right now - we talk about everything with each other... growing up, heartbreak, mental health, love, sex, friendship, families, the world we’re living in etc. We want to share these conversations with the world, and we think this is what 2019 should sound like. 

Do you have a ballpark idea of when you’d like it out?

Who else do you think will be ‘ones to watch’ over the next year or so?
Grand Pax and Suzi Wu are great female artists that we are excited for!

Anything else we should know?
We are doing our first headline UK and EU tour in February / March 2019 - can’t wait! You should know that you should get tickets.
