MP3: Lia Ices – “Grown Unknown”

Lia Ices
Back in 2005, people woulda labeled this “freak folk”. Thank God it’s 2010 2011 and that term is an anachronism, because there’s nothing freakish about New York’s Lia Ices – besides her talent, that is.

At the most basic level, the classically-trained songstress makes pop music. Weird, surreal, aching, beautiful, poetic, graceful, fluttering pop music. Just listen to “Grown Unknown” with it’s heady highs and tantalising claps and you’ll want to surrender yourself completely.

Lia Ices will be releasing her sophomore record, also called ‘Grown Unknown’, on 28th January through the always amazing, Jagjaguwar. Now finding a home at the label that discovered the likes of Bon Iver, The Besnard Lakes and Okkervil River, you can expect to see big things from this gal in the year ahead.
