Review by Rivertree
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Band Submissions
4 stars IKARUS are a band from Switzerland, definitely unique and highly prolific. Their music is not easy to grasp, differing somehow, just because they are not a group of rock musicians in a common sense, in no way. Anna Hirsch and Andreas Lareida are delivering corresponding male and female vocals, which are very dominant, while having a strong zeuhl-ish expression here, just like exotic solo instruments one can say. Generally seen they are meandering through jazz and avantgarde meadows. Where there is no reason to miss the electric guitar really. Besides the extravagant vocals Lucca Fries' piano is the instrument which gives some other main points.

A typical trademark in their music is a somewhat staccato style. Furthermore vocals and instruments are interacting in quite an alternating manner, partially purely parallel, partially falling apart. Ikenophobia makes my day, every time I'm listening to this album. The wonderful vocal presence, a celestial piano, minmalistic drums and contrabass, the atmosphere is simply awesome. Ramón Oliveras should be mentioned of course, as he is responsible for this fine compositions. Bravo! 'Mosaismic' is a very pleasant alternative if you are longing for some variation here and there.
