“Icarus” is a seven-and-a-half minute haze that integrates distorted, detuned guitars with a slacker sound that develops into a punk-infused rendition basking in colourful psychedelia.

The first three minutes are a refreshing trip down memory lane where guitars ring with Stephen Malkmus’ Pavement sound, Old-school rock vocals from frontman Will Marsh enter the fray; vocals that are satisfyingly shaky towards the end of each sentence.

Starting off soft, “Icarus” soon develops into a chaotic crash of persistent percussion, with heaps of cymbal smashing that integrate a haze of layered guitars, emitting psychedelic gold and twinkles of shouty punk.
