Oh god I got a record by an ex-Testicle. That's not the moniker you really want is it? Maybe you should choose your band names more carefully chap. Warm Brains is marginally better, mind, & this isn't that Dave Haynes, the one with the spectacles & the London hair. But he is called Rory! They can't win these Icic-lads can they? I really like the mid-tempo pace of this tune with its implicit shards of angry guitar tendrils trailing everywhere, the fretless bass pumps that seem to amp up the intensity, the suggestion of a semi-conceived anthem in there, the slow, considered yet faintly wonky/stoned vocal that sounds slightly like Davey from Brilliant Corners or the Gene guy after too many shots of Jagermeister? By the end the song builds into something quite mesmerising & mercurial from its plodding yet endearing origins and has me totally demanding more. The flip is a real surprise too, a gorgeous female vocal (hello Roxanne Clifford) transforming the band's tentatively pure U.K. sound into a more shoegaze-d post-rock beast - icy ethereal indie rock with a strong brooding presence that, one again, has me hankering for more. Nice one from the label that brought you The vaccines. Here's the real cure!
