Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s Kurt Feldman’s side project, The Ice Choir are back with a new single, A Vision of Hell, 1996. The track, like earlier single, Two Rings, continues the love affair with Tears For Fears and Scritti Politti and is just the easy breezy way to start our weekend. The track appears on their debut, Afar.
We’re big fans of The Ice Choir, the new project of Kurt Feldman, who is the drummer for Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Their earlier track, Two Rings really wowed us and now they are back with a new single, Teletrips, a wintery track which goes down real smooth and reminds us of Scritti Politti. Their debut album, Afar, is scheduled for release on July 31st.
Videos to songs we recently covered have emerged. Since we have already talked about the songs, we thought we’d combine all the videos into a single post.
Miracle – Good Love
First off we have the new single by Miracle. The guys are dressed to impress and look very Mirrors-esque in their video that incorporates religous imagery and gorey bits. We don’t know what’s going on and what it is suppose to symbolize, but we like it.
Ice Choir – Two Rings
An interersting spinning records effect is used by the debut video by Brooklyn’s Ice Choir, out of Brooklyn who sound like a cross between Petshop Boys and Tears For Fears. The single is out now.
Duran Duran – Girl Panic
We featured Girl Panic when we covered Duran Duran for our “Where Are They Now” segment and now they have gone back and done another fabulous video that pokes fun of themselves by having late 80s and early 90s supermodels portray them in a mockstyle documentary. It’s genius.
Brooklyn’s The Ice Choir lovingly mixes the Petshop Boys aesthetic with plaintive vocals similar to Tears For Fears to create a seemingly paradoxical mix of melodrama and calm that blends together effortlessly. Two Rings is their debut single to be released next month. Of course it doesn’t hurt that these guys are also just as easy on the eyes as they are on the ears.
