When Icarus Falls
Formed in November 2007 in Lausanne (Switzerland), When Icarus Falls comprises five guys with varying musical influences - from jazz to hardcore to classical, thus enabling a real creative freedom in their sound. Inspired by the likes of Cult Of Luna, Mogwai, and Envy, they enjoying toying with various styles and exploiting their instruments. Expect to hear opposing jazz beats alongside screaming vocals, or a bow played guitar alongside a gentle piano verse. Combining rage and hopelessness, melancholy and brutality, When Icarus Falls develops a post-hardcore sound between tormented ambiances in an ocean of ravaging guitar riffs and charming piano pieces, and everything led by a voice so desperate, that it’s hard to categorize.

Their first EP, "Over The Frozen Seas", is the culmination of the search of a specific sound, one that is at the same time deep and warm. It was recorded and mixed by Julien Fehlmann at the Studio Mécanique (La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland) and mastered in Hollywood by Gabriel Wallach at Lurssen Mastering. The digital distribution is handled by Poison Tree Records (Fu Mancho, Mondo Generator), and the CD version was released in September 2009 by Get A Life! Records.
