New Band: Ice Choir
Ice Choir is the new project of Pains of Being Pure at Heart drummer Kurt Feldman. Feldman changes course from his usual tweegaze music to make down tempo synth pop which reminds me of 80's new romantic bands like Scritti Politti, Johnny Hates Jazz and Visage. One of the band's new songs is called I Want You Now and Always which hints at the Depeche Mode classic I Want You Now. It is always fun to hear the old school keytars, drum machines and cold synth swaths.
The band just released their latest single called Everything is Spoilt by Use which features Caroline Polachek of Chairlift.
Ice Choir release their debut album, Afar, on July 31st via Underwater Peoples.
