Interview With Ikons

INTERPLANETARY POWERKRAUT

Interview With Ikons

INTERPLANETARY POWERKRAUT

Ikons are six musicians and one video artist. They live in Gothenburg. The band’s members have fluctuated over the years, but Ikons always remain large, like a cultish tangle of late-80s indie, Mancunian post-punk and barmy beats. Ikons make music that is intended to be both a cosmic odyssey and transcendental adventure for all who listen. Live, the band perform against a backdrop of stunning visuals which emphasise the repetitive and hypnotic elements of the music.

Earlier this summer they released their second album – Life Rhythms – on Swedish label Service (Jens Lekman, The Whitest Boy Alive). You can chew off a chunk to taste by downloading Polaroid Cocaine here. It’s a sax-driven shoegaze number. Oh, and do check out the video for Sister below. It features sky-diving nuns.
