It was Icarus the Owl

Posted by: Anton Djamoos (03/26/10)
Earlier this week, we asked you if you knew who this band was. It was Icarus the Owl, and for thanks in helping us figure it out, we convinced the guys to let us give you a free download of their new song, "Mythomaniac" (right click > save as).

Clicked on the link to their myspace, and got no further than the bassist's sweet beard.

Well done, sir.

The lead singer's vocals are nice but a bit all over the place. At 1:02 he literally thinks he is Patrick Stump haha

and in a week no one is going to remember this.

unless you are an established, well-known band, viral marketing like this is annoying as fuck and does not help. fuck if you HAVE to do viral marketing, at least TRY and be interesting...or play good music to make up for it

not so bad, they could use some production on their guitar work though, sounds very digital

This.

And shame on AP for being submissive to viral marketing. I remember when writing good songs was what got you noticed.
