ICKS, THE: Self-titled: 7”

The A-side song takes forever to get going. The intro is about three times longer than it needs to be. Once things get going, it settles into a moody, post-punk/goth sound that is pretty solid. The B side kicks into a real Slumberland indie pop-style song. Pretty decent single from this Indianapolis band.
