Roys Iron DNA

Roys Iron DNA

 Edinburgh, Scotland, GBR

Music for the present tense. Electronic dub beats melted with samples and synths overdubbed with dirty bass and pyscedelic guitar. Acoustic rythms and soulfilled, political lyrics reign supreme. Snowballed from tiny pubs to marquees and clubs. Music to comedown to and lyrics to aspire to.


Based in Edinburgh but scraped together from the hotspots of east coast Scotland: Dundee, Edinburgh and Berwick upon Tweed.

Music for the present tense. RIDNA began in 2005.

To write songs as good as Kurt Cobain. To make beats better than DJ Shadow. To sell soul like James Brown. Might take us a while!

RIDNA have released a 'Record Collector' rated clear vinyl 7” to critical acclaim.
RIDNA have played small venues and massive marquees in pubs, clubs, toilets and fields.
'Silent Majority' and 'Soon You’ll Know' are available to download now from iTunes, 7Digital and all good internets. Debut album will be available from September.

Tony Blair, Damon Albarn, LCD Soundsystem, Who Made Who
