*** SINGLE ***

Lead single Wack Jack is released on October 27th. The song has already become a live favourite and deals with stalking and lost love.

This song is about the fascination after loss and the extremes that can sometimes lead to. explains iC1s singer Daniel Coburn. I knew that the moment we wrote the song it would connect with people of all ages as we have all been through something similar to a greater or lesser extent.  We tried with the music to reflect the calmness of one side of the equation in the verses and the power and unpredictability of the other person in the chorus and I think we managed it pretty well


*** ALBUM ***

The album In The Blink Of An Eye ,shares its name with a line in second track Levitate’  A song that tackles the issue that runs as a theme throughout the album of escaping and finding pastures new.

Written and recorded in London with Grammy winner Ian Dowling on production and mixing duties the album sums up the journey the band have been on in the last year and provides a perfect springboard to move forward with and fulfil the much talked about promise and praise from the likes of Alan McGee and The Libertines.

Through its themes In The Blink Of An Eye showcases iC1s unshakable ability to conjure immediately satisfying, vibrant music. “We’ve always wanted our songs to appeal to everyone but feel like they are aimed at just you,” explains Coburn. “I write about personal experiences and that makes the songs a real tangible, living thing to me which is important.”

In The Blink Of An Eye will be available as a Standard Album on CD and digital formats, and an extended 12-track Deluxe Album, available digitally and via download code.
