Since making her NATIVE debut with “Balanced”, we’ve kept a keen eye on Ictooicy, and for good reason. The self-described ‘poet with a flow’ makes bedroom pop/R&B with an emotive soul, a prime example being her Best New Music entry, “Melancholy Baby”. In addition to her undeniable talent, she’s quite prolific, putting out new material in quick succession.
Her latest release is a single, “Slow Dreams”, and it continues her penchant for combining Lo-fi production with honest writing. Frequent collaborator Kayuzo puts together the heavy 808s and murky piano synths, enveloping Ictooicy’s voice as she confronts an inconsistent love interest. Pairing her wonky melody with the song’s cruddy mix, her piercing nature of her melancholic set is amplified, due to an intimate feel the DIY aesthetic induces.
Listen to “Slow Dreams” here.
