Today we’ve got huge news in beautiful music we’ve been hiding from you! We are so, so proud to announce that Brooklyn artist Lia Ices has signed with Jagjaguwar.
More info about Lia Ices and a new, free mp3 after the jump!
True to the ever present dichotomies that serve as a source of inspiration for her, Lia’s emotionally driven and experimental pop music is both avant garde and timeless.
A natural yet refined grace permeates Ices’ work: she is a piano herself. Dancing on a finely crafted line between the percussive qualities of her instrument, and the melodic elements within the rhythm of her voice, Ices’ music reveals itself as epiphany. With such overt elegance as if from a bygone era, listening to Ices’ music inspires a psychic time slip, and its hard to know if you’re wading in the warmest of memories or awed by the invention and glow of new surroundings.
Please stay tuned for an announcement about Lia Ices’ upcoming album. For now we are very happy to share a new song! “Grown Unknown” is a triumphant and haunted pop song structured with handclaps, guitar and violins to complement Ices’ captivating vocals.
Her website, which contains lots of cool info, videos, pictures, etc, is located here.
This video from her last record is my favorite, though.
