THE ICY SHORES
The Icy Shores are a Minneapolis-based indie rock band, comprised of singer/guitarist Nick Hegarty, drummer/backing vocalist Nick Larsen, and bassist Shane Stubblefield. Their sound leans toward the loud side of indie, with influences like the Afghan Whigs, Nada Surf, Drive Like Jehu and Nirvana.
The band started life as a four-piece, with singer/guitarist Hunter Jonakin splitting singing duties. The band's first album, "What You Get And How You Get It", was released in 2005 on Catlick Records. Upon the record's release, the band played extensively around the Minneapolis area. They also produced a music video for the album's single "Backseat", and contributed the track to the "For Callum" compilation (a benefit for Callum Robbins), which was also released by Catlick Records. In early 2007, Jonakin left the group to pursue other interests, and The Icy Shores became a three-piece.
They set to work recording their second album, "The Opposite Of Your Heart" in the Fall of 2007, capturing basic tracks at Terrarium studios with Bryan Hanna (Golden Smog, The Hang-Ups). Recording was completed over the next 18 months at Catlick Records' Studio 9. The record was then mixed by J. Robbins (Promise Ring, Jawbox, Jets to Brazil) and mastered by Bruce Hamilton at Magneto Mastering. Also during the time the album was being recorded, singer Nick Hegarty co-wrote the leading track for Antony and the Johnsons' 2009 album "The Crying Light" (Secretly Canadian/Rough Trade).
"The Opposite Of Your Heart" was released on Catlick Records on May 4th, 2010.
