Ikons Play Space Rock – Fuck Yeah…

February 13, 2010

A heads up on the forthcoming album from Ikons – a 7 man collective from Sweden – 6 musicians and one artist in residence. The album has has mixed by Dan from Studio and Alex Palmestal of Pistol Disco.

From the opening bars of ‘Slow Light’, the instrumental album opener, it reminds us of the Warriors soundtrack which is obviously no bad thing – all swirling synths, rolling basslines and affected guitars. The tracks develop with minimal looped vocals and driving guitars added to the mix and remind of a more uptempo Studio. Apparently they have a pretty tidy live show (think the exploding plastic inevitable) and should be over at some point this year.

If you like a bit of noise in your cosmic then you might like this. Also comes with super nice artwork. Check it.

Ikons is released via Service on April 19th. Available on CD and 180g vinyl.
