"New York's Weeping Icon are emblematic of everything that made Sonic Youth so compelling – downtown cool, noisy riffs, vague nods to krautrock, icy vocal delivery and hooks built under the guise of being anti-pop." Read more at Revolver
Last month, Brooklyn's Weeping Icon announced their debut full length with the premiere of the album's first single, "Ripe For Consumption" on Stereogum. Described by Bandcamp as "rock at its most vital" the single has set high expectations for the album, which is due out on Fire Talk and Kanine Records on September 27th. Today, the band are premiering their second single from the album "Like Envy," with Revolver following a first play this morning on Beats 1.
"New York noisemakers Weeping Icon deliver their anticipated debut; with cutting guitars and krautrock beats, this is rock at its most vital." Bandcamp
“'Ripe For Consumption' is its lead single, a frothing, tightly-knotted track about the commodification of art and culture and becoming successful at the risk of losing your values." Stereogum
