Lia Ices

Posted in girls, music by okkame on January 9, 2011



I caught wind of Lia Ices who illustrates an accidental similarity with an ice cream shop in Brooklyn as you can see below, at a period what, in retrospect, I reckon the tail end of the free-folk mountain slides and the inclusion of Vetiver drummer Otto Hauser in her live band accounts for her affinity with this musical flux. Despite my confident prophecy about the advent of the new indie Aphrodite, it seems to have turned out that Lia Ices only met with a regional following, at least the evidence from my espionage indicates as such, which we’re obliged to set right in this second leg of her gracious visitation. * On a side note, I thought Lia Ices as the yang to Lizzy Trullie’s yin. Lia Ices appears to have graced merely a page of Vogue (well, there would be more), as opposed to Lizzy Trullie’s already a fashion staple.

To my droughty existence, her music means more than just music, it’s also a human-borne set of streams flowing out from New York’s cultural alluvion, the aural conveyance of her emblematic New York-ness whose characteristics are quite different with those of New York-ish others.




I concede that that could be an afterthought, since knowing her dazzling background – born and raised in Connecticut, attended N.Y.U.’s famed Tisch School of the Arts’ Experimental Theater Wing, and that I’m captivated by her equally gorgeous exterior that projects airs not dissimilar to those perceivable in the New York socialites. The center of her creative activities and livelihood is said to be Brooklyn, but Manhattan, to wit the Upper East Side, is much closer to the images I conjured up from the sociocultural echoes of her (Spare me, I’ve never been even to America). She elegantly activates herself like a shrubby Julia Roberts with delicate breathability, and is an involuntary displacer; you instantly become out of her league, yet gratefully. But again, the pronounced urbanity and colorful the sense of freedom in her music can be easily attributed to the gargantuan manifoldness of that spirited city.
