Lycia

Tempe, AZ band Lycia's underappreciated '90s gem Cold has been resurrected by Handmade Birds. For the unaware, the record is an icy, unforgiving and ultimately brilliant, sprawling darkwave touchstone, and is highly reccommended for fans of the genre.

In addition to Cold, Lycia is also on the move with new material too, releasing a new set of tunes called Quiet Moments, also via Handmade Birds. Don't let the smooth-jazz-sounding title fool you, the new effort is a similarly inspired piece of icy darkness, and includes the new track "Greenland" available for stream below. Order copies of both the new LP and Cold at Handmade Birds.

I discovered this band because Type O Negative's Pete Steele listed them in the stuff he liked. "Cold" is a great album. I wonder if "greenland" is a reference to him.

I really wish they did more songs like this where Tara and Mike harmonize the lyrics... or are there more songs where they do that that I don't know about yet?

Best at high volume. They don't stray far from the core musical theme in this one.

all hope is lost, from the opening chord i tingle throughout my body, and all sensibility is lost into the depth of it's shear beauty

When I need total mental reflection and a soundscape that immerses me into complete satisfaction, this is where I come. Thank you Tara and Mike for sharing the sounds of the deepest part of the mind with us all and making it all come to life!
