iC1s are a five piece from Harrow, London, who recently released their debut mini album In The Blink Of An Eye, on November 3rd 2014 through Two Sisters Records. They also unveiled new single 'Wack Jack' and an Autumn tour.
In The Blink Of An Eye's lead single ‘Wack Jack’ is a live favorite that covers stalking and lost love.
“This song is about the fascination after loss and the extremes that can sometimes lead to,” explains iC1s singer Daniel Coburn. “I knew that the moment we wrote the song it would connect with people of all ages as we have all been through something similar to a greater or lesser extent. We tried with the music to reflect the calmness of one side of the equation in the verses and the power and unpredictability of the other person in the chorus and I think we managed it pretty well”.
In The Blink Of An Eye shares its name with a line in second track ‘Levitate’ - a song that tackles the issue that runs as a theme throughout the album of escaping and finding pastures new. Written and recorded in London with Grammy winner Ian Dowling on production and mixing duties, the album sums up the journey the band have been on in the last year and provides a perfect springboard to move forward with and fulfil the much talked about promise and praise from the likes of Alan McGee and The Libertines. In The Blink Of An Eye showcases iC1s unshakable ability to conjure immediately satisfying, vibrant music.
Now gaining a fearsome reputation for blistering live shows sharing stages with the likes of The Charlatans, The Cribs, Frankie & The Heartstrings, The Family Rain and Darlia. Their current UK tour with Dexters will yet again unleash iC1s on to the live stage and it’s clearly a place they love. Dates below.
