Icewater – Bite Fresh Air

Delicate and detailed, Bite Fresh Air by Brooklyn band Icewater is a song of understated dexterity, all meandering melodies exploring the soundscape, waves of colour and visions of yearning. Not folk exactly, not acoustic, it is earnest and entrancing, with shifting strains of elegant guitars and a hazy spirit that lays over rhythmic and hypnotic gentle beats. Although housing a bittersweet sound that surely must be imposed by the listener given that it was recorded before the tragic and sudden death of founder member Grant Martin in August last year, there’s a gentle warming feel to it that endures and endears throughout its wandering.
