About Ian Erix
With his colossal wide leg pants, platform sneakers, multi-colored hair and
trademark sunglasses, you won’t confuse Ian Erix with anybody else on the
music scene right now. His outrageous style is a talking piece second only
to his music which these days is perhaps best described as Electro Pop Punk.
Those familiar with the earlier works that first catapulted Erix into the international spotlight, racked up over 20 million plays online and landed him on several Top 10 charts on 3 continents will certainly recognize the signature elements of his sound but they will also surely appreciate the musical evolution Erix has undergone in the process of making his new record.
When asked about his musical style and unique take on fashion, Ian says “People tend to have all kinds of labels for me but I’m just me. I’m a mutt, I’m all mixed up!” Erix sang those very words in “So Scene, So See Through”, an anthematic number off his 2010 EP that became a cult hit and spurred the creation of the Mutt Army Soldiers, a sizeable group of dedicated fans who identify with Ian and support him around the world via numerous global street teams. Now, in 2013, Ian will release his eagerly awaited new album on Ultra Music, titled “What Is Normal?”, a record chocked full of infectious melodies and hooks featuring compelling, thought provoking and often quirky lyrics. The new material proves Erix is a formidable songwriter in his own right and marks a significant growth for him as an artist. He pays homage to his pop/punk roots on his most recent musical effort but this time around he marries his signature guitar driven balls-out score with solid amounts of modern dance beats and synth elements to create a fantastically catchy electro rock hybrid that is sure to resonate loudly with his current fans and open up the floodgates to a legion of new recruits who will surely join his army.
