NYC band on the rise: Icewater releases debut album on 02.01 at Baby's All Right

NYC band on the rise: Icewater releases debut album on 02.01 at Baby's All Right

Delicate and detailed, 'Bite Fresh Air' by one year old Brooklyn band Icewater (streaming) is a song of understated dexterity, all meandering melodies exploring the soundscape, waves of color and visions of yearning. Not a folk song, it is though earnest and entrancing, with shifting strains of elegant guitars and a hazy spirit that lays over droney synths and hypnotic, gentle beats. Although housing a bittersweet sound that surely must be imposed by the listener (given that it was recorded before the tragic and sudden death of founder member Grant Martin in July this year), there's a gentle warming feel to it that endures and endears throughout its wandering. The song is taken from the band debut album "Collectors Edition" whose release will be celebrated with a show at Baby's All Right on February 1st. - Francesca Baker
