Ikarus Down Releases New Music Alongside I’m Not a Pilot This Friday

Ikarus Down

“Out Of Your Mind”


Milwaukee’s Ikarus Down sure knows how to turn a CD release show into a proper party — the band is teaming up with local musicians, I’m Not a Pilot, (who recently appeared on WMSE’s Instrumental Saturdays) to turn what might be another typical release show into a double-header event. With their new release in tow, the quintet of rockers  take their sound (which they describe as “between Radiohead’s spacey groove, Kings of Leon’s ballast and the indie pop sensibilities of Death Cab for Cutie and Phoenix”) and display their range, moving from heartfelt ballads to muscular rock-outs. Listen to two tracks from Ikarus Down’s album, above, before catching them at Whiskey Bar [788 N. Jackson] at 8 p.m. on Friday evening. I’m Not a Pilot will be showcasing selections from their new album, Need Money For Rocket Fuel.
