Irureta is the world’s less cosmopolitan Benelux band.
Irureta shamelessly loots: indie-rock, synthesizer music, psych/post-rock, math-rock, afrobeat, sound collage, lo-fi music, and certainly more.
Around that, an aesthetic and abstract identity built itself over the years, mainly around the themes we saw fit to include in our research : old school / vintage sports (“Le Beau Jeu” is central in that respect, and is embodied by technical, collective playing soccer players from the 70’s, in contrast to the performance seeking, ego-tripping idiots we’ve got these days) like Football or Formula 1, charcuterie / sausages, pâtés, weed, cats, delicious beers, and red wine. Also : space traveling, Derrick, absurdist comic books and drawings, mad scientists worldwide, south american countries, exploitation films, early electronics etc.
90% of our track titles are made of the worst puns one could come up with in French. We take great pleasure in making those puns. In a nutshell? An experience in pleasure and (bad?) taste.
