Icky Blossoms

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Omaha based electro-pop three-piece, Icky Blossoms, have paid homage to Siouxsie and the Banshees’ post-punk classic, “Arabian Knights.” Icky Blossoms’ rework is powered by subterranean synth lines, a propulsive electro-industrial rhythm, and the same classic guitar riff that you know oh so well.

Since the 2012 release of their self-titled full-length, the trio has been hard at work on Cowboy Knights, their upcoming seven-inch split with Black Lips. Check the stream below and be sure to pick up Cowboy Knights from Saddle Creek on 4/20.They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Icky Blossoms’ combination of brooding synthesizers, danceable drums, and self-assured melodies are as welcome on the dancefloor as they are at the gym. The band formed in Omaha, Nebraska in 2011, bringing together singer/synth player Sarah Bohling and singer/multi-instrumentalists Derek Pressnalland Nik Fackler (who indie film fans may recognize as director of the Independent Spirit nominatedLovely, Still), who became acquainted through the Omaha arts scene and Pressnall’s side band from Tilly and the Wall, Flowers Forever. By early 2012, Icky Blossoms signed to Saddle Creek, who released the band’s self titled, full-length debut that July. Produced by TV on the Radio multi-instrumentalist Dave Sitek, the album featured “Babes,” which Rolling Stone described as a “girl-power dance anthem.”
