Born and raised in communist Bulgaria, Krassy Halatchev (Icicle) grew up with a few tight friends who were true music maniacs. Being one of them as well, he studied and analyzed every note of the repertoire of his favourite bands (Pink Floyd, Genesis, The Police, The B-52’s, Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Clash…). With a little help from his friends (and band mates) he bought his first bass guitar - a Fender Music Master. It proved to be the best investment he ever made, for it changed Krassy’s life. Following years of ardent practicing and playing in garages and clubs, the skilled musician fled from his native country and landed in Montreal one freezing-cold winter day in 1990. His brother-like peers from the band The Clouds accompanied him in this new and exiting adventure. At the time they were passionately devoted to the 90’s psychedelic rock. After many subway and club gigs, considerable magazine and newspaper coverage, and two full-length albums, the members of the band decided to explore new horizons, this time separately. In 1996 Krassy joined the band Chiwawa. Produced by Steve Whitfield (The Cure, The Mission, The Trash Can Sinatras) and recorded at The Mission’s studio in Bristol, Chiwawa’s first album The Sick World of Yona won the attention of the media. Becoming a core member of the group, Krassy composed and sang a major part of Chiwawa’s seven albums worth of material. In 2014 Icicle released his first solo album, Resurgence. Multifaceted and very seasoned, this 13-piece oeuvre represents a passage door between the past and the future, a quintessence of lessons learned and dreams that lay ahead. His second album, Theorems (2015) cemented Icicle’s broad musical path where rock, pop and funk elements stir a mixture of fresh, innovative and genre defiant sound – Icicle’s specialty.

You can only hide for so long
When deep down you know you got it wrong
It'll never just fade away
You know you can't escape what lies ahead

Like a sappy movie you can't forget
Like a photograph that gets you upset
Like the first kiss in your life that left a tattoo 'cross your heart
It'll always be with you along the way

Go on now and open your eyes
You can see right through their disguise
All the rules now seem so insane
Like a silly little game they had you play

Like a sad song you wish you never heard
Like a lesson you wish you never learned
Like inception carving through your mind
Where can you hide? Where can you hide?

Like a sappy movie you can't forget
Like a photograph that makes you upset
Like the first kiss in your life that left a tattoo 'cross your heart
Like a dream that always comes and never leaves

Turn it inside out and see it heal
Blooming hearts in strawberry fields
Coming out of every pore of life
Mesmerized and real… How does it feel?

Like a potent gust of oxygen and flair
Like phantom power sprung from nowhere
Like the first kiss in your life that left a tattoo 'cross your heart
Like a chapter in a book you wish you wrote

Like a second chance that came your way
Like that moment when you blushed and looked away
Like the first kiss in your life that left a tattoo 'cross your heart
Like the dream you caught and held in your hands
