ColoRising Interview with Ice Balloons

NYC band Ice Balloons are consistently dubbed as a super group. To an extent that may be true but the group are first and foremost friends who have come together to create art with absolute freedom and room to explore. Consisting of Sean Kennerly of Samiam, TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone, Sean Powell of Fuckemos, Midnight Masses’ Giselle Reiber, B.A. Miale, Rob Bryn of Wild Yaks and Dan Scinta, their music is a collage of riotous punk, New York no wave, garage rock and noise all rolled up into one event of a listen. To call it energetic would be an understatement and in terms of their stage show, well let’s just say that it is probably one of the liveliest performances one could see…ever! Wilder than wild, the ‘common fly’ charges about on stage singing vocals and at some point in the show there may even be sparks popping and flying about on his body.

On the surface it’s more than easy to fall for Julietta. The New Yorker instantly captures attention with her drop dead gorgeous, model-like features. However, when she sings, you instantly begin to understand that she is more than just good looks, but possesses a voice that is incredibly powerful and fierce, that definitely cuts through any noise currently in music.
