Icarus Falls is a band from Brighton whose blend of Classic, Southern, Grunge and Modern Rock secured them a slot at the 2018 Ramblin’ Man Fair on the strength of an EP entitled ‘Venom’. Described as ‘where Black Stone Cherry meets Alice In Chains’, the five-piece have after hours access to a commercial garage owned by the father of lead guitarist and songwriter Harvey Wigg, in which they have installed recording gear and use as a rehearsal space. Garage Rock, indeed.

Having spent the winter working on new songs, the group will release their first single of 2019 on 29th March and play some dates around the south coast to promote it. Coupling a huge riff and a killer groove over which singer Doug Hay displays his unique and powerful voice, ‘Burning Tree’ also boasts a great video made by Loki Films.

Wigg explains the genesis of the track as follows: “I tend to write lyrics on my phone, then bring them into rehearsals and hand them over to Doug to work on the melody. On one occasion I gave him a lyric that I wasn’t very happy with, so I scrolled through my phone and found another that I had no recollection of. However, I then saw a note to myself at the end stating ‘Dude, you were high AF when you wrote this, but it’s awesome so make sure you turn it into a song.’ That is exactly what we did and that song is now ‘Burning Tree’.”

Unsurprisingly, given how its words came about, Wigg reveals that “the song is about being a zombie at a job you don’t enjoy, while in your spare time you find it difficult to relax because of work the next day, so you resort to smoking weed. That is fine, but deep down inside you are also aware of the need to sort your life out so you can enjoy yourself without recreational drugs.”

Icarus Falls is a rock band from Brighton who secured a slot at the 2018 Ramblin’ Man Fair on the
strength of an EP entitled ‘Venom’. Described as ‘where Black Stone Cherry meets Alice In Chains’,
the five-piece are in the enviable position of having ready made access to a fully fitted recording
studio cum rehearsal space in a garage belonging to the father of lead guitarist Harvey Wigg,
who also uses it to fix engines in his day time job as a mechanic. Garage Rock, indeed.
Currently recording new songs and in the process of setting up a single for release in early 2019,
the band are also now in the somewhat less enviable position of being inundated with messages
from fans of former One Direction heartthrob and now solo star Zayn Malik, who has just announced
that his next album (out on 14th December) will be entitled….yep, you’ve guessed it….’Icarus Falls’.
Wigg says : “Last week we kept getting likes and comments through various social media from Zayn’s 
fans. I’m sitting thinking why are they interested in us? Then we found out why….”
Amused by the prospect of Zayn’s army of teen followers checking out his band’s blend of Classic,
Southern, Grunge and Modern Rock and having their minds blown, Wigg adds : “Although the name
is a coincidence and there is quite a contrast between his music and our own, we wish him the best
of luck with his album….which clearly has a fantastic title. Ha ha!”
