LIA ICES

"Ices" is a celebration of flight, levity, and the conviction that you can leave earth. You take wing in an airplane, you go to real places when you dream, you have out-of-body experiences, you get high, you lose yourself in someone else.

Lia Ices On So You Think You Can Dance

 

The music of Lia Ices has been used for several contemporary dances, and the acclaimed dance competition So You Think You Can Dance used Lia’s song “Grown Unknown” for the opening number of their second-to-final show of this year’s season.

The Wall Street Journal wrote:

“Grown Unknown” by Lia Ices is the song for the opening group dance. There‚Äôs a lot of clapping for rhythm, a big red rose in the middle and all the dancers are in white. It‚Äôs very pretty. And cool music. The rose ascends to heaven at the end and confetti falls to the stage. This might be the first time all season I run to iTunes to buy a song I heard on this show.”

Lia Ices’ “Ice Wine” Video by Yours Truly

 

Today we premiered the Yours Truly live recording of Lia Ices’ “Ice Wine” on Pitchfork TV. In the Nate Chan-directed clip, filmed at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco, Ices and her band were in the midst of a tremendous tour with The Cave Singers on their way to SXSW in March of 2011.

Lia Ices will play a handful of select dates later this summer, including a set at Lollapalooza.

 

 

New Video from Lia Ices for “Grown Unknown”

 

Today in an exclusive premiere with Pitchfork TV, we are pleased to present the music video for the title song of Lia Ices’ tremendous Jagjaguwar debut album, Grown Unknown.

Lia Ices’ video for “Grown Unknown” is a visual performance diary documenting modern dancer Ruby MacDougall’s three week voyage across the Pacific from¬†Long Beach, California¬†to Shanghai, China. The song “Grown Unknown” is about resisting our tendency to control and confine our desires; it celebrates the discovery of a personal unknown. Ruby’s dance document aligns with Lia’s song in a most poignant way: confined to a ship in the middle of the massive ocean,¬†she uses dance as a means to express herself amidst extreme newness. For when we surrender to our wild, untamed energies and venture into the unknown, we expose ourselves to personal revelation. The opening lines of the song set the stage for Ruby‚Äôs exploratory dance: “I can’t live on a solitary stem, when there’s open land and warm wind.” The footage was shot from a laptop camera, and edited by Joanna Bovay (who also edited Lia’s video for “Half Life”).
