LIA ICES

True to the ever-present dichotomies that serve as a source of inspiration for her, Lia Ices' emotionally driven and experimental pop music is both avant-garde and timeless. A natural yet refined grace permeates her work: she is a piano herself. Dancing on a finely crafted line between the percussive qualities of her instrument, and the melodic elements within the rhythm of her voice, Ices' music reveals itself as epiphany. With such overt elegance as if from a bygone era, listening to her songs inspires a psychic time slip, and its hard to know if you're wading in the warmest of memories or awed by the invention and glow of new surroundings.

Lia Ices Interview and Exclusive Video Posted at the Village Voice

Parts & Labor alum and famously terse music critic Christopher R. Weingarten featured Jagjaguwar’s Lia Ices in this week’s Village Voice “Yes In My Backyard” column.  The post features a new video (featured above) of Lia’s recording session that included the vocals for “Grown Unknown.” You can read all about Lia’s process, what “Grown  Unknown” is really about, and if those are actually hand claps or thigh slaps (hint: they are thigh slaps).
