To London, Ontario's Icewater, success is measured one person at a time. For a band that is so young in their career, Icewater has already accomplished so much in the way of achieving this goal. Playing in their hometown of London has cultivated a large fan base, which continues to grow. Their fanclub, The Icewater Legion - aptly named in reference to Kiss's 'Army' - has reached over 300 members. Locally, Icewater has been honoured with two music award nominations: The London Music Award (Pop Rock) and The Jack Richardson Music Award (Rock). Icewater's third independent release, 'Meltdown', showcases how far the band has progressed since it's inception. The 3 song EP combines Icewater's knack for socially-poignant lyricism and dark surging musical composition on tracks like 'Bookburner' and 'Addicted' and their ability to deliver surging, raw emotion on tracks like 'Take Me Down'. The disc's opening track, 'Take Me Down' delivers a kind of sonic thrust that evokes emotional upheaval in listeners. The powerful, anthemic melody soars as the music drives relentlessly beneath it. The melodic bass line is masterfully voiced to offer a consistent support to the song, while presenting a memorable hook that compliments the equally brilliant vocal melody. 'Bookburner' distils some of the best elements of Icewater's music: shifting dynamics, huge choruses, and tight arrangements. An insistent unison guitar and bass riff lays the groundwork for the song's high-energy yet haunting character. This obstinate hook is distinctly and notably Icewater's own, and helps to truly explain their original, yet marketable sound, which is present in all of their material. 'Addicted' is a relentless, percussive song that truly defines Icewater's musical intentions and lyrical force. The listener's expectations are continually thwarted as the song shifts from having a hard, unyielding bass and guitar driven energy throughout the verses to a highly melodic, peaceful chorus. This shift is reflective of the song's lyrical content, where all is not as it seems and 'addiction' is viewed as unpredictable. To truly appreciate and understand Icewater's musical force and ambition, a live show must be witnessed. One of the most energetic live music experiences available in the Canadian music industry today, Icewater will draw you into their on-stage energy within seconds of their opening chords, and will not cease to have you enthralled until the night comes to a close. Since their inception, Icewater has played over 100 live shows in London and surrounding areas. They have headlined many notable shows of their own and members of the band have shared the stage with acts like Project Wyze, Blue Rodeo, Magneta Lane, The Mark Inside and Ashley MacIssac. With all of this, Icewater continues to push forward in the Canadian rock industry with the firm belief that they have more fans to find and shows to play. Icewater continues to rock any stage that will have them and the road to success seems to be getting shorter.
