The biggest difference between Ictooicy and other aspiring new artists has always been her casual DIY approach to music. We’ve grown used to Icy baring her soul and diving deeply into head in her music, however, her latest EP, ‘Lavish’ takes a more adventurous direction and positions her as a soft-voiced rapper who knows how to party; “You know me I like to party/ Find me where the drinks are plenty”.
“LAVISH” 09/06/20 can’t wait to show you guys what I’ve been working on throughout these weird confusing times I love you guys and please stay safe💙💙💙💙

On the 4-tracks of ‘Lavish’, Ictooicy rhymes over pillow-soft instrumentals of electric guitar riffs, synth-pop samples and trippy beats produced by Pan and Lexis and Chris. Fasina and 234Jaydaa feature as guest vocals on the title track, “Lavish” and “Shadows” respectively, and with each song, they contribute perfectly to Icy’s gentle tale of romance.
Some of the tracks on ‘Lavish’ highlight the problems she has noticed with her relationships, with particular details to the effects it had on her emotions. With sharp hooks, and thoughtful lyrics, her voice is as dreamy and charming as the backing instrumentals, and throughout the project she shows off significant artistic growth all round.
Listen to the EP below.
