Icarus Phoenix – “Eddie King”


“Eddie King” is the most recent single from Icarus Phoenix, the captivating songwriting project of Drew Danburry. Icarus Phoenix shows a knack for weaving narratives with poignant themes, aesthetically stretching from anthemic rock to sentimental folk. Conveying a chugging rock feel, “Eddie King” captures the beauty of seizing the day, even as “we’re all on our way to decay.” Showing shades of Jonathan Richman and Jeffrey Lewis, “Eddie King” charms throughout with its melodic vein of rock and self-driven protagonist, driving to a satisfying conclusion highlighted by playful guitar tones.

“Eddie King” released alongside the video above, hand-drawn and animated by Danburry. The track comes via Icarus Phoenix’s latest album, No Tree Can Grow to Heaven Unless Its Roots Reach Down to Hell, streaming below:
