On the eve of their newest release ‘Beautiful Ugly’ (out on Two Sisters Records); IC1S took the stage at Bethnal Green’s uber trendy Sebright Arms to give their fans an eyeball to eyeball intimate performance to both promote the single as well as thanking their fans for their continuing support in 2013.

This year has been a big year for the group as they’ve successfully juggled recording their upcoming debut album as well as releasing 3 singles, 1 EP and performing multiple gigs, acoustic sets and line up changes. The gig was also a ideal chance to see the band in a smaller venue before they embark on their upcoming promotional Japanese tour and support slot gigs with The Family Rain at the end of the year.

The set was familiar sticking to fan favourites such as ‘Levitate’, ‘Not Perfect’, ‘Growing Up, Going Down’, ‘Beautiful Ugly’, ‘Whack Jack’ and a new song ‘I’m At It Again’ which showed that the IC1S sound is evolving and growing as they move forward as a band. This was the first time I’d seen new bassist, backing vocalist and former sMALL FAVOURS frontman Leon Dee since his inclusion within the group and I believe that his input can only be beneficial as his own playing style and vocal harmonies bring a new level of sophistication to the music which on occasion felt limited in these areas in the past. IC1S look primed and ready to go out of the trap and hit the music scene hard in 2014. Catch em’ while you can.
