I spoke to Icarus the Owl frontman Joey Rubenstein about upcoming new music. It’s the first long-form interview I’ve done for a while (rather than Q&A) and I really enjoyed putting this together. Check out the full interview at Punktastic and watch their new cover of Vanessa Carlton’s ‘A Thousand Miles’ below.
“We would always play that piano intro on the guitar during soundcheck at shows,” explains front-man and founding member Joey Rubenstein. “It would usually get a laugh or two, but we legitimately like the original song and our style of playing guitar is very percussive like a piano, so it seemed like a cool way to redo a song.”
