Brooklyn’s No Ice have premiered the video for their new single “The Cemetery,” off of their recently released album “Come on Feel the No Ice”.
No Ice started as a recording project of singer/guitarist Jamie Frey and drummer Jesse Katz, who were playing in native NYC rock n’ roll band The Brooklyn What. Working with producer Oliver Ignatius, who runs Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen, a Brooklyn recording studio/Utopian arts collective, the two began recording the set of songs that would become their debut full length LP “Come On Feel The No Ice”. The title of the album is a tribute to the 1993 album Come On Feel The Lemonheads by The Lemonheads, which is a profound influence on the band, as well as artists like The Replacements, Guided By Voices, Big Star and Elvis Costello. The sounds on the record draw from everything from punk to girl group to synth pop, augmenting Frey’s introspective songwriting with doo-wop and soul inspired harmonies from vocalist Gwynn Galitzer and Television and Sonic Youth-esque instrumental cathartics featuring Jesse Katz, guitarist John-Severin Napolillo (also from The Brooklyn What) and keyboardist Sean Spada (The Bottom Dollars, The Nuclears, Le Rug, Deathrow Tull). The album features guest apperances from producer Oliver Ignatius (formerly of Ghost Pal), Madeline Gioia, Marco Sanchez, Jake Warren and Dan McLane (of NYC r&b outfit The Harmonica Lewinskies) and Chadbourne Oliver (The Graveyard Kids, The Jackal), all members of the Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen music & art collective.
