‘If It’s Broken…’ reviewed by NME & Kerrang! this week

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Our new bloody album, ‘If It’s Broken, Break It More’, (due out on Monday April 22nd) got reviewed by NME and Kerrang this week.

We’ve also just uploaded the album to the Lost Toys Bandcamp where you can stream a new song from the album, ‘Accept the Mystery’. If you pre-order the album now you get 3 tracks from the album straight away and the rest on April 22nd.

NME dumped a big fat 8 on our noise:

Ice, Sea, Dead People - 'If It's Broken, Break It More'. NME Album Review (8/10)

We also got our first ever mention in Kerrang! magazine who gave us 3 Ks:

Ice, Sea, Dead People - 'If It's Broken, Break It More'. Kerrang! Album Review

More to come, hopefully!

Also we’ll be posting something about our tour very soon, thanks to everyone who bought merch and to the promoters for being so great (especially the Europeans!)

Drowned In Sound reviews WrongPop vol 1

Drowned in Sound review WrongPop

Drowned in Sound have reviewed the WrongPop compilation for Deafness Research UK which our song ‘Diamond Swords’ features on:

“Ice, Sea, Dead People not only have a truly wonderful band name, they also provided ‘Diamond Swords,’ a frenetic beast of a song that burns itself out quicker than most bands can open a six-pack.”

Indeed.

Be sure to buy the compilation from the WrongPop Bandcamp page now, it’s only £5 and is only available for this month only.

‘Teeth Union’ reviews so far…

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

You may have seen us in the press recently, we’ve been lucky to get some column inches for ‘Teeth Union’ from the NME, Rock-Sound, Loud & Quiet, etc. as well as hitting the radiowaves. Check it out:

Ice, Sea, Dead People - 'Teeth Union' review NME. "This meaty debut from punning devils Ice, Sea, Dead People conjures just the kind of gloriously primal racket you'd expect from a Bedford trio that describe themselves as "east angular mammal noise". Post-hardcore righteousness bolstered by agit-punk is what powers 'Teeth Union' and the mind-bending brouhaha it whips up. Amid the carefully ordered chaos of raucous early single, 'Hence:Elvis', 'My Twin Brother's A Brother' and 'Until We Break Our Legs' one detects the expert influence of Shellac bassist Bob Weston, who mastered the album. Still lamenting Erase Errata, Fugazi and Untitled Musical Project? This could heal your heart." 8/10

Gig Pick - NME. "From the depths of the belly of noisedom comes an aural onslaught more powerful than a kick in the nads. London three-piece Ice, Sea, Dead People return to the gig circuit in the run up to the release of their post-punk art-noise debut album 'Teeth Union'."

Loud And Quiet Review. ""From the initial ear-twisting note of this thunderous record it becomes blindingly obvious that it wll not find favour with the aging chattering classes who loudly grumble that, "Music isn't as good now as it was in my day", because those keen on luscious melodies will soon be shaken into a quivering, deply scarred wreck by a continual stream of spiky edged mathematical discordance that hurtles by faster than a Japanese Bullet train. 'Justin Klein' may have a traditional, counted-in intro but like 'Hence:Elvis' and every other song contained on this album it is fiercely abrasive, manically chaotic and fantastically riff heavy. 'Teeth Union' will not bring any mainstream awards towards ISDP but at least they can be proud that they have created a short, sharp record that gleefully jumps over the barriers and brings other to an instant halt."

Online press:

“This album works as an explanation of exactly why this tense, chaotic guitar attack is always so much fun, no matter how much it hurts. It makes a hero of every kid who can turn their guitar up too loud.”
The Quietus

“Theirs is music for audiences ready to embrace tinnitus. Theirs is a racket that attracts plaudits full of adjectives like “angular”, “abrasive” and “artsy”. Which is, obviously, a brilliant thing; a messy, sketchy, scrambled puzzle of pirouetting riffs and clattering percussion, with vocals atop like rotten cherries, sticky-sweet to the touch but sure to leave a bad taste in the mouth and a pain in the guts.”
BBC

“Ice, Sea, Dead People are clearly not fans of the predictable or safe.There’s enough energy in these pre-packaged twenty-five minutes to power a small country for a year. It makes me want to throw myself across rooms and jump and jerk along with the angular, disjointed noise pouring through my speakers.”
The Line of Best Fit

“An accomplished debut album in a genre that can be very hard to ‘crack.’”
This is Fake DIY

“Keepin’ it punk, energetic and spontaneous in all areas.”
Buddyhead

“Teeth Union’s nine feedback-laden bony punk compositions played too hard and too loud with practically unintelligible lyrics are seriously pleasing things; think White Light/White Heat if it had been recorded in the 21st century by irritated art-schoolers with a budget.”
The Skinny

“Almost plumbing No Wave depths of deconstruction at times, the band’s scathing post-hardcore racket reveals an obsession with smashing both rhythmic conventions and listener expectations.”
Alternative Ulster
