The Icy Shores
Inspired by “the loud side of Indie” (Afghan Whigs, Drive Like Jehu and Nirvana), this trio recorded its sophomore album, The Opposite of Your Heart, with production/mixing help from Bryan Hanna (Golden Smog, The Hang-Ups) and J. Robbins (Promise Ring, Jawbox). Don’t let that “loud side” comment fool you — The Icy Shores’ songs are often heavy, but they’re also smartly crafted and passionately delivered.
