Take a journey through the land of Ice Iris, a collection of five shiveringly ethereal tracks. This holiday EP will add a shadowy glow of seraphically strange spice to your season.

Paulina’s version of “Frosty the Snowman” has been described by reviewers as “a snow shrouded electronica dream,” a “slightly dark synthpop number with spacey, psychedelic undercurrents,” and “all breathy and whisking with frisky whispers and tinkling charm.”

Set in classic Storyville, New Orleans, “Madam Mistletoe” tells the story of a Christmas Brothel. An original holiday song, the sensual and naughty character of Madam Mistletoe sings, “Gift boxes all open for you to do as you will/With my Christmas Carol, or Suzi, or Jill/Peppermint hose over perfumed thighs/Momma’s stockings hold a big surprise.”

“Snow Queen,” another original, transmits what reviewers portray as “an eerie yet beautiful, classical-tinged piece.” Blending ethereal yet melancholy vocals with ice-tinged piano work, Snow Queen transports the listener to a hushed, melancholy, moonlit garden of snow.

“Toyland,” a reworked holiday traditional, brings us into slightly-sinister Christmas territory, and the enchanted “Angels We Have Heard” sets forth a chorus of angels and bells.
