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.

SMILING SACRED SMILES

Hallowed heroes have hypocritical haloes
At least so the story’s been told
By victors with pens, devoid of all sins
Till the romans returned seven-fold

Of pharaohs and sparrows and white walled wheelbarrows
I think I prefer oaken doors
That open to find a prophet that’s blind
Surrounded by six token whores

Like a spider she spins a tale about the time when
The lawyers had no one to rob
An age long forgotten, like roses gone rotten
Where teachers held the highest paid jobs

And the tyrants were buying the slaves forced to pave
The pyramids triangular miles
And the people believed in a place that deceived 
Human hope as it hung by a rope

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

As I glide down the face it begins to erase
The place where sensation does thrive
So I change the channel on the rage box’s panel
And groove with a movie that kills

Time like a rhyme but deep down inside
The animal longs to run through the hills
While the sun energizes my soul
And I know where I go pure energy flows

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles
