Fiona's Comments

Angelic, hypnotizing voices with a big hit out of nowhere. Who'd be a bird? Poor Ikarus. Sometimes it's hard to be a feather ball, giving all your love to just one plan.

About the Album

On the EP Through birds, through fire, but not through glass, named after Yves Tanguys painting , IKARUS weave a tapestry of dreams and reality. The songs create surreal landscapes and go beyond the boundaries of the ordinary. “The songs make you dream and create original images in your mind’s eye. They are like film music without a film”, explains Ramón Oliveras, the band leader. Bartôk meets James Blake; Arvo Pärt fuses with Eivind Aarset.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
