Ikonika is a legend, you should check her out

that does sound terrible, on paper. But I like this somehow. I want to come up with a better description but I haven't figured it out yet

i listened to a bit. i'm not a big r&b listener but i'm reminded a bit of jessy lanza.

Hit It is quite good actually, I like the bass squiggles. I think she should get another name to avoid confusion though.

Ikonika is better.

Those distorted stabs are kinda cool, but nowhere near as cool as the new Ikonika single, which is fantastic: https://ikonika.bandcamp.com/album/oral-suspension

i hate that this thread has so far only attracted readers who think i dont know how to spell ikonika

I think it's more like good-natured antipathy toward an artist that spells their name one letter off from one we like better

its apples and oranges

how does this R&B singer compare to this techno producer? obviously the one ive heard of before this thread is superior

I just don't want people's main association with the name to be the singer if she blows up, and so I feel an urge to mention Ikonika every time I see this thread.

As much fun as it is to troll you on this, I can start a "Thraed of Ikonika" if you prefer.

damn how deep does "hit it" go

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Wednesday, 3 January 2018 02:06 (eight months ago) Permalink

This really is good, I think?? Whenever I have to add "i think" but no one seems to get on board to the extent that I begin to doubt myself, is how I know I really found something valuable

i think this is really good. gets a little out of focus sometimes but idk, the songs themselves seem very internally ambitious to me, lotta prince via the-dream here i think

lotta qualifying in that sentence too lol. i feel like the opening track could distract people from the rest of it, it is going particularly hard into the lana del weeknd smokey between-note subspace, but every time it repeats its trick i'm endeared to it more
