EMÆL Emulate Icarus on New Single “The Boy Who Melts the Sun”
Premiered on Grimy Goods.
Nothing more accurately describes the future than being engulfed in flames, due to your own hubris at that. “The Boy” is adapted for our generation, describing Icarus’ confidence with stunning complexity and depth, not just in the lyrics but also through the band’s woven rhythms. EMÆL’s trademark is the cello, but this proves that they can integrate the instrument in innovative ways; the power in this single comes from the complement of strings, squealing electronics, that infectious guitar riff.
