Iris Brickfield are a two-piece synth-rock band based in Newcastle upon Tyne. 

Made up of Ilana Hawdon on vocals, guitars and drums, and Elis Knowles-Levitt on synths, keys, and backing vocals, they formed in mid-2020, in the midst of the pandemic, writing and recording songs from two different countries. Their debut EP "Hold On My Lovers" caught attention from across the local music scene, and saw them play their first headline gig at a sold out Cumberland Arms in Newcastle.
