BIO

Icarus is the alter ego and solo project of a Örebro based songwriter. The purpose of his self crafted mask is to ensure the focus remains on the art and not the person behind it. He blends funky indie-electro tunes with stunning videos in a short story format. Both the songs, artwork, and videos are created and produced by Icarus himself. Initially, the purpose of the project was to act as a challenging creative outlet but ultimately resulted in Icarus starting to release tracks and videos to the public. 

SOUND

Imagine if Justice, Daft Punk, M83, and Miami Horror had a baby with Porter Robinson, Roosevelt, and Parcels. With his infectious pop hooks combined with grooves, talkbox, sample chops, and groovy basslines Icarus brings life to the 80s/70s and french house scene from the early 2000s. To put it simple: It's retro indie-electro with a modern twist!
