Ikonika for The National

An ~essay-length~ review of Ikonika's debut album, 'Contact, Love, Want, Have' for U.A.E.'s finest, The National.

The album’s first peak is another single, Fish: a building synth drama that weeps intensity. Clean and pared down, it is also, thanks to its crisp woodblock percussion, comfortingly human. For all the supposed cyborgisation of the computerised composition process, this is assiduously fleshly music – warm muscle tissue in motion, a rush of blood to the legs.
