We are Impyus

Impyus are a 5-piece from Yorkshire ( Leeds & Harrogate ).

Impyus are a 5-piece rock/hip hop/rap outfit from Leeds:

  • Tiph Milstar (Propz) - Lead Vocals, Guitar

  • Mark Rinder - Backing Vocals, Guitar

  • Liam Sullivan- Drums/Percussion

  • Matt Hickey - Synths/Piano

  • Joe Pagan - Bass

Impyus have just released their second independent EP titled Clarity. This follows on from their successful debut release, Tiptoe. Tiptoe was released in 2016 with the title track featuring regularly on BBC Introducing.

Clarity was recorded by Mark Rinder and Joe Pagan at White Noise Studios, Harrogate. Mixed and Mastered by Mark Scully of The Chairworks, Castleford.

A dynamic & collaborative writing style has helped Impyus achieve their unique sound which includes: interesting rhythms, unusual song structures, and, a sprinkling of hip hop. Mark’s unconventional fretwork perfectly compliments Matt’s soundscape of synth which provides Tiph with a platform to deliver his thought provoking lyrics in the rhythmic and melodic style he is known for. This all lies on top of an inseparable rhythm section from Liam, on Drums and Joe, on Bass - intertwining syncopation with a strong, driving undertone.

After a busy and rewarding 2016, Impyus are looking to make 2017 their biggest year yet!  

"Impyus are somewhat of an anomaly when they came onto our music radar. After listening to countless indie bands and rock bands, they blew us completely out of the water with their sound. Like nothing we had ever heard of, they combined funk with rock… With hip hop… With prog… With just about anything you had ever heard. Yet with all this scope, they still nurtured it into an awesome sound. In short, they are like the nu-metal that stayed relevant, the rap rock that didn’t try to copy the market and the funk rock that never went cliche. With a really avant garde and new wave sound that might catch you completely off guard. Every new genre comes from somewhere and in the future these may be the guys that will have that acclaim attached to their name! So as always get out there and show these guys some love on their social media and help give these guys a push in the right direction, they deserve it!"
