Is it reality? Imaginary? Or post-colonial anxiety? Depression? Oppression? Or simply the succession of trivialities? Rat-racing? Ship sinking? Or just another sunset rising? Is it the answers we seek or the questions we hide? What we’ve lost or what will we find? Into the Days of Bays we dive, bring a scoop, a taste, a flavor made for you to describe.
The band earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the bands on the forefront of Malaysian indie music scene. Theirs is a vastly intelligent brand of instrumental rock with an added knack for exotic Oriental melodies, somewhat akin to Explosions in The Sky meeting Ride during Chinese New Year.
Strictly local, gorgeously global.
Citizens of Ice Cream create a sound as delicious as the name implies. Track from the debut album “Days of Bays” tantalizes the senses with twangy guitars, punctuating synthesizers, and skittering drums.
Dominated by a non-linear movement, the track expresses a spatial freedom that is overwhelming, captivating, and all together blissful. The different instruments dance around each other as the layers smoothly gel, regardless of the configuration.
