Sadurn have shared ‘icepick’, the latest single from the Philadelphia band’s upcoming debut album. The track follows previous cuts ‘snake’ and ‘golden arm’, and it comes with an accompanying video. Check it out below.
“‘icepick’ was a cathartic song to write and I didn’t think I would ever show it to anyone,” vocalist/guitarist Genevieve DeGroot told The FADER. “That’s what makes it cathartic I guess. The process for this song was different than most of the others on the album, which are played live with the band – we started with the same spliced up Garageband beat from my original demo and laid down each synth and guitar track individually. The song was still pretty bare bones when we left the recording session, and months later Jon [Cox] and I were kind of hitting our heads against a wall trying to finish the arrangement. Honestly we almost gave up but it turned out to be something I’m really proud of. Jon added the shaker and some reverb-y guitar, I did the baritone uke fills and added the sample at the end, which was from a phone video of Amelia playing guitar. The ending of this song might be my favorite part of the record.”
