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.

BECAUSE YOU ASKED

Because you asked I’m going to tell you
How my road brought me here where I belong
I wanted acclaim, I needed admission
Into a world full of fame and glamour life

I hopped on a plane, a mustang of freedom
That took me away far beyond from where I was born
I landed these docks across the Atlantic
Eager for crowns, gold and grandeur in Kodak dreams

But then I began the schooling of life
The one that is real and the one that is tough
I learned from mistakes, my ego got roughed
Down to the depths of my natural self

Because you asked I’m going to tell you
I paid an arm and a leg to earn this prize
The man I was then, cosmetic and fragile
I buried behind and my soul is placid again

Because you asked I’m going to tell you
The warnings were there, on the wall, for all to see
I trained to be me, I learned to be helpful
And tend to the child deep inside, unspoiled and true

All of those years I fought to become 
The one that I always imagined I’d be 
The path was abrupt, tough and obscure
I couldn’t perceive how it ends or begins 

All of those days of hard work and strain
All of them turned to be wonderful grains
And then there were sprouts, the blossoms of self
They taught me to be as sincere as I can
