Icky Blossoms

Omaha, Nebraska's trio Icky Blossoms won't be escaping your memory anytime soon, from their brain-sticking moniker to the 90_s electronic fetish synth-pop they craft with gorgeous ease. Think of girls wearing your favorite leather jacket from back in the day, studded out, patched up, with red lipstick on (and probably smeared), stomping around to heavy dance beats in your combat boots--you're now part of the crowd at a standard Icky Blossom show. Guitarist and vocalist Derek Pressnall, vocalist Sarah Bohling and lead guitarist Nik Fackler let us in on some of what makes them tick--including their love for the score of Final Fantasy, a run-in with a missing phalange, and suggesting why watching the sunrise with them might not be such a bad idea. Keep an eye out for the release of their self titled album produced by TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek, set for release on July 17th on Saddle Creek.
