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.

At water’s edge I drift to sleep
At water’s edge I wake
My only thought is thinking that 
My thoughts will overtake

My sanity, my sanity
Encapsuled in a spiral
Colored crimson remnant
Of falsified denial

Reason battles reason
Across a desert full
Of purity, of purity
Held behind a wall

I know that I could climb it
I know I would not fall
But how pure is the purity 
That doesn’t heed my call?
At water’s edge I’m dreaming
Of the things I should have said
Unspoken words that haunt me
Drowning at the water’s edge

Perhaps it’s just illusion
I see things that aren’t there
But what I saw in your eyes
Was enough to make me care
Expectations falter
(I am at your feet)
Disappointments rise
(I am at your feet)
Something deep within me
(I am at your feet)
Does destroy me as it dies
(I am at your feet)

Looking in the mirror
Of the water on the sand
Perhaps I just imagined
That I’m better than I am

It wouldn’t be the first time
It sure won’t be the last
That I pander to my ego
And watch purity go past
In some imagined future
At water’s edge I stand
Asking you to join me
Reaching out my hand

No matter how I want you
No matter how I try
You will never answer
I can only wonder why
Expectations falter
(I am at your feet)
Disappointments rise
(I am at your feet)
Something deep within me
(I am at your feet)
Does destroy me as it dies
(I am at your feet)
