As you’d expect from a band signed to Blue Swan Records, Icarus the Owl are an extremely talented group of musicians. This is the second track from their new album Pilot Waves and I think it proves the point nicely. The vocal direction is very interesting and something that I wasn’t too sure on at first, but after several listens of Pilot Waves I’ve become a huge fan. Tonally there’s a combination of Matt Geise of Lower Definition and The Dear Hunter’s Casey Crescenzo going on, but the real brilliance of vocals is in the arrangement, which gives the band a unique sound.
The album is out now and a review of the album will be up on Already Heard early next week.
