Anyone punk pop fan will adore Icon For Hire’s latest track called ‘Brittle’. This track is from their album ‘Amorphous’. The first attribute that I found from the song was the strength and brilliant vocal sound of Ariel Bloomer. The intensity and passion she sings with is admirable. Secondly I noticed the supporting music, that match the vocals so well and built up and up each chorus. Thirdly, and for me what I will associate with Icon For Hire for ever is the incredible lyrics. They blew me away. I will let you know some but the impact of them won’t be felt unless you listen to the song itself. “They call me damaged, I let them think what they like, they call me difficult as I don’t fit in the lines, but I did not get this far without any scars, well I did not get this far without any scars.”
It has been a while since I have heard a pop punk song of this high calibre. Please take a listen and share the song far a wide!
