8/10 Rating – EXCELLENT Album

Bella Union’s Private Pressing label has released a new album from DIY artist Icebeing aka Luke Phillips. The new album is titled Striped.

The project is the work of prolific Brighton-based Luke Phillips, whose recording output over 10 years has numbered almost 30 albums, released online under different names. Icebeing is his newly outgoing, song-based front: “My first conscious effort at making pop music,” says Phillips.

The album is an amalgamation of pop, psychedelia, electronic and rock. The catchy and epic track “Channel What I Was Feeling” was meant for arenas. “A Figment” and “Then” are vivid and multi-faceted. “King of Pyrotechnics” is reminiscent of Kevin Barnes’ Of Montreal recent work. “Everything Goes Blind” is an interstellar ballad-esque track. The album is fun, playful, and refreshing. Standout tracks: “Channel What I Was Feeling”, “A Figment”, “Then” and “Everything Goes Blind”. Check Out: “Channel What I was Feeling” below:
