We recently checked out the sonically perfect Bristol,UK based 5 piece rock band IOTA The new single “Take It “ is an exercise in absolute melodic goodness.
Take It, was recorded at Bristol’s Humm Studios with Ben Johnson (Skindred, Chaouche) and Idles’ Lee Kiernan, mixed by Tom Hennessy, and mastered by Pete Maher (Pixies, Jack White, The Rolling Stones).
IOTA’s genius is master class level of musicianship of Jodie Robinson (Vocals ) , Josef Parkes (Guitar ) , Sam Mattison(Bass), Joe Dean (Guitar ) and Thomas Johns (Drums)
“Take It “ has all the making of a strong explosive rock classic . If you like your music to come at you like a rocket IOTA is your band and “Take It” is your anthem.
Speaking about the single, the band reveal, “Take It was inspired by the fight with yourself in a multitude of circumstances, work, relationships, socially and mentally. The continuum of holding yourself back and having this other side to yourself that is constantly telling you, “you aren’t good enough, you won’t make anything of yourself”. The persistent reminder of how well everyone else is doing, social media controlling us and having a huge effect on us mentally. Constantly taking that push back and battling with your own mind as if it is a whole other person inside of you. We wrote the song during and before lockdown with Lee Kiernan who helped us build on the track instrumentally and melodically
We are all in on IOTA and you should be too….
