Portland-based Icarus The Owl has premiered a brand new cover of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand MIles”. by Vanessa Carlton. It’s chock-full of three part harmonies, guitar wizardry, and technical drumming – a staple in most Icarus songs. The band is currently on tour with post-hardcore super-group Sianvar (members of Dance Gavin Dance, A Lot Like Birds, Hail The Sun, and Stolas) and are scheduled for a full US tour this Spring with Stolas (Equal Vision Records).
The band is currently on tour with Sianvar and Frameworks, and recently announced that they will be hitting the road with Stolas and Mylets this spring.
On the new cover, Icarus The Owl shares: “This song is timeless to us and we’ve always jokingly played the main riff while sound checking on stage. We decided it was time to do a proper cover. Also the scene in White Chicks.”
