Biography

Hailing from America’s center, Omaha-based Icky Blossoms formed in the blizzard of 2011 through friendship, trials and a mutual desire to make art and new music. Guitarist and vocalist Derek Pressnall (Tilly and the Wall) met Icky Blossoms vocalist Sarah Bohling and lead guitarist Nik Fackler in the vibrant Omaha art scene and invited them to play in his band Flowers Forever. Enchanted by endless nights in clubs and inspired by a desire to program dance music with instantaneous grooves and depth, they formed a band not only wholly unexpected, but greater than the sum of its parts.

Icky Blossoms combine bass-heavy electronic grooves, pop structure, and a rock & roll swagger to pioneer a sound on the audio vanguard: music that is simultaneously avant garde, catchy and danceable. By brazenly denying to be subservient to a single genre or medium, Icky Blossoms is set to garner the attention of a truly diverse audience and make a lasting impact on music to come.

The self-titled debut album, produced by Dave Sitek from TV On The Radio, features the hypnotic synths of "Heat Lightning", "Babes", which was lauded by Rolling Stone as a "girl-power dance anthem" and the experimental, aptly titled album closer "Perfect Vision."
