Icicle

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.

BETTER PIN ME DOWN

Yeah, yes, I want it bad
It’s burning my eyes and soul
But I’m not backing down
No, I’m not backing down

How many a time
I saw the way out through that door
But I’m not turning back
No, I’m not going back

Voices deafening at times
Telling me “Let it go!”
But go where, I ask

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down 

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down

Every now and then
I do lose my way in the crowd
And I tumble down
Yes, I tumble down

But when I get up 
And look up ahead far beyond
My wings open wide

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down 

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down 

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down

I know I have it now
It’s filling my chest and heart
And I’m breathing calm
Yes, I’m breathing strong

I’m ready to get on
Get rid of my bags and stones
And embrace the light
Turn wrong into right

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down

Daunt me, doubt me, play me up
Twist my arm but better hold me down
Trick me, quit me, stand me up
Toss me out but better pin me down
