Due to manufacturing problems, Icky Blossoms’ debut album release has been delayed until July 8.
Released through the esteemed Saddle Creek and produced by TV on the Radio’s David Sitek, Icky Blossoms’ self-titled debut LP see’s Tilly & the Wall bassist, Derek Pressnall, joined by the sultry vocals of Sarah Bohling and lead guitarist Nik Fakler. The special UK edition of the album will also be accompanied by a second disc of remixes entitled Revisions.
Icky Blossoms combine bass-heavy electronic grooves, pop structure, and a rock & roll swagger to pioneer a sound on the audio vanguard. Their music spans from the anthemic to the introverted, chronicling the twists and turns of the human condition. Each band member arrives at the group from distinct musical backgrounds and collectively cite varied influences including contemporary pop, electronic, hip hop, experimental, no wave and world music. When Derek, Sarah and Nik each input their particular inspirations they create a final product that is not only wholly unexpected but greater than the sum of its parts.
In a crowded musical landscape where it’s often hard to stand out, Icky Blossoms prevent a bold, brave and provocative album for hedonists, lovers and those who just want to dance.
The Revisions remix EP sees the band’s original works re-sculpted by peers including infamous LA DJ Them Jeans, YACHT drummer & DFA artist Jeffry Jerusalem, San Fran producer duo Enso and more.
