We are delighted to announce our latest signings, Icy Demons. We will be releasing the Chicago band's deliciously unpredictable third album in April. Entitled Miami Ice, the LP takes in elements of krautrock, whimsical psychedelia, 80s electro, electric jazz and indie rock, wrapping each song up in a crispy nugget of dayglo pop. And we love 'em for it.
The band revolves around Chicago scene stalwart Griffin Rodriguez (aka Blue Hawaii), along with Man Man drummer Chris Powell (aka Pow Pow). Any super observant Leaf enthusiasts may recognise the former's name from the production credits of recent volcano! and A Hawk And A Hacksaw releases (some of which were put together in his Shape Shoppe studio). Not only that, but Rodriguez was previously in Bablicon with AHAAH's Jeremy Barnes. So it seems they were always destined to join the Leaf family...
We will bring you release details shortly, but first of all, feast your eyes on the band's tour dates here. Following some shows in their homeland, Icy Demons will tour Europe for the first time later this spring.
