IQU turns the electronica underground inside out with their debut album Chotto Matte a Moment! IQU are in harmony with the analog instrumentation of the past, deftly melding it with the present modern day tools of the trade, connecting the dots and loops between drum 'n' bass, soundtrack, kraut rock and bedroom trip hop. Some have pontificated that the future of pop music will blend the rock, rave and dance scenes together. IQU thrive in this climate, forging their own niche and creating a space conducive to the ever-blurring lines of modern musical styles.
Influenced by post-dubstep, lo-fi house, and trip-hop, 1five1’s sound draws from iconic outfits like Portishead, even as she completely pushes her own distinctive beats and textures into sophisticated spaces beyond those original inspirations. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 13, 2018
