If you want to spread your wings with rebellious alternative rock and melt into the banging sounds of the 1990s, Icarus Melts in the Sun is your go-to playlist. It lifts off from shoegaze, dives into grunge, flies through trip hop, and crashes down with a blast from the 80s.
Icarus Melts in the Sun revolves around a Greek myth, and it’s packed with themed alt rock and rock subgenres to ignite your summer. So, slip into your Birks, pop on your Sunclouds, grab your cooler and head to the beach with the nostalgic sounds of Gen X.
Hi there, I'm Joshua. I have been listening to songs for longer than I can remember. It has really been an integral part of my life. As a 2000s kid, I grew up listening to a lot of alt rock, pop punk and nu metal. I have come a long way since then, listening to a wide array of music including (but not limited to) synthwave, tropical house, lofi and prog rock. I wish to discover more amazing music and share it to the world.
I have always believed that music is a medium that can be used to connect and inspire people. It is a unique form of self expression which can move everyone. For me personally, it's a really special bond/connection that makes me who I am. So, I certainly think that the songs a person listens to says a lot about their personality.
I have also tested the waters and tried making some compositions myself. I wouldn't say it sounds amazing but if you are interested, take a look at my soundcloud:
