Interview with Aaron North

Posted September 14, 2019 by admin

As someone who has been a massive fan of The Icarus Line since THAT 5K Kerrang review, what can’t be emphasized enough is just how much of an impact Aaron North had whilst he was in the band – whether it be through Buddyhead or via his own numerous interviews that he conducted over the […]

Posted July 6, 2014 by admin

Drowned in Sound recently reviewed The Icarus Line’s new (forthcoming) EP and were less then impressed. Arguing that the mini-album lacked the judicious editing and urgency of its bigger brother, the reviewer stated that “keen editing is likely what kept these songs from that record in the first place, and yet that’s something unfortunately absent […]

Interview with Joe from The Icarus Line @ Catch 22

Posted November 5, 2011 by admin
