Gareth Icke – It Gets Worse At Night
“his voice is both soothing and plaintive and moves most powerfully when the music falls back into the quietude of simple guitar picking for accompaniment; creating the kind of ambivalent tension reminiscent of a Lord Byron poem or a David Sedaris essay. Even when he’s singing about the kind of loneliness that gets worse at night, there’s a strange hopefulness in his voice that reassures things will all work out alright in the end.” – Jasmine Anderson , Biocritics.
“The problem with being a failed musician is that whenever you find yourself listening to pure talent you feel jealous and perhaps a little nauseous as you realise that you’ll never be that good. As a failed musician, when I listen to Gareth Icke, I feel like I’m in the throes of death…..but it’s a happy death.” – Alex Baker, KERRANG!
