Breaking The Ice (IPU126)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $4.00

“Breaking the Ice” is another candid single from Jeremy Jay. This single, another volume in our International Pop Underground series of 7-inch 45 rpm records, appeared on Slow Dance (KLP197) in the springtime of 2009. With shiny synths, noble guitars, and a strong will – it is another chance at romance.

The single also includes an alternate version of “Winter Wonder” with icy and unsettled synthesizers, and a sincere and effective cover of the innocent 50's song “Words of Love” by Buddy Holly.

This is Vol. CXXVI in K's International Pop Underground Series.

The digital version of this 7-inch is available from Bandcamp

Slow Dance uses crisp garage-rock and frigid post-punk as a backdrop for [a] romanticized pop fantasy … It’s the most weirdly mesmerizing in a series of promising singles, EPs and full-length releases [by Jeremy Jay].” Pitchfork

“Jeremy Jay has become one of the most oddly compelling pop songwriters of recent memory.” —XLR8R
