Album Review

Following their debut Pure Sugar EP, The Icicles take their sweet pop a touch further on A Hundred Patterns. This may be due to the fact that they recorded A Hundred Patterns at Marlborough Farms with Ladybug Transistor frontman Gary Olson and Bill Wells.

A Hundred Patterns will definitely warm the heart and make you want more from the Icicles.
