I’m going to preface this article with a warning: Icarus is not for the faint hearted. Heavy Trap newcomers Hekler and Whipped Cream have come together to create a song that’s so out of this world it’ll, well, take you out of this world. Insane sound designs, kicks that are more like miniature explosions and more snippets of silence than you’d think are the name of the game in Icarus, creating a tense atmosphere similar to that in Hekler’s previous releases. It’s slow yet calculated, and feels like it’s over before it’s even given you a chance to draw breath. But really, that’s not what Icarus is about. Icarus is about smashing your ears while you enjoy it, and if you like your Trap hard then you’re definitely going to enjoy it.
Oh and by the way, they’re dropping an EP together next month.
