Ears Wide Open: The Icarus Line

by KEVIN on FEBRUARY 24, 2010


The Icarus Line hasn’t made much noise since 2007’s “Black Lives on the Golden Coast” blared into my headphones and, I thought at the time, positioned them as hard-rock contenders. Now Joey Cardamone and his quintet are back, ever playing the bad boys, with a new single on iTunes, “We Sick” b/w “Holy Man.” The A-side shows what the Icarus Line can do best, with guitars that bite and claw and poke and prod, and a snarling chorus. Iggy would be proud.
