‘Icarus’ glides on the waxen feathers of Faultress’s soaring voice. It is a song about those thoughts of ours that overreach, set to a soundscape of stunning synth production. Faultress’s persona shines resplendent through her mythologic lyricism, mesmerising harmonies and spoken word segments. It is a poised and assertive performance from a musician with a masterly handle on the themes of her art.
