The Ironing Maidens - Strike While The Iron's Hot

The Ironing Maidens - Strike While The Iron's Hot
Award-winning electronic duo, The Ironing Maidens are putting domestic labour, technology and the history of women in electronic music centre stage with a powerful new take on house music - electro housewife style.

Ingeniously adapting real irons and ironing boards into electronic instruments to create breakthrough beats, The Ironing Maidens have toured Europe, playing Germany's famous Fusion Festival, featured at Byron Bay's Falls Festival and taken out the 2017 Best Electronic Music Production in their local music Awards.

The Ironing Maidens, Patty Preece and Melania Jack, inspired this experimental project five years ago when they discovered many women electronic music pioneers were absent from their electronic music education.

"Looking into the themes prominent during the 1950s when women like Daphne Oram were developing their highly influential work, we noticed parallels between the dismissal of women’s work in the home and the lack of recognition for women in music technology development" said Patty, "So we developed a new show exploring ways of creating sound with an iconic symbol (the iron) and attitudes around recognition."

A homage to House Music and a call to arms for the housewife, The Ironing Maidens are bringing their fresh pressed beats to a laundromat near you.

About this track...

An ironic love song for the lusty Westinghouse set against a kicking 4-to-the-floor drum beat, kooky lead line and 1950s advertising samples playing on the iron as an iconic symbol of women's work.
