Ice Cream have dropped a new video for the title track of their current release Fed Up. The duo will be a number of festivals over the next couple of months, including New Colossus Festival in New York this week, as well as Festival d’été de Quebec in June. Speaking on the track and video Carlyn explains, “FED UP is about a search for freedom– from the body, from the systems that bind us, and from the monotony of daily life. In the video we’re running toward that freedom while a drone follows close behind.”
Ice Cream is the product of years of collaboration between Amanda Crist and Carlyn Bezic, two longtime veterans of the Toronto music scene. Crist has played and toured with US Girls, and Bezic with Slim Twig; together, they’re members of the supergroup Darlene Shrugg. They’ve been making music as Ice Cream for five years, and what originally started out as a spare “molecular pop” project has evolved into something far more lush and layered, borrowing in equal measure from pop, electronic music, R&B, and classic rock to make a sound that’s completely their own.
