These perky Canadians call themselves "icthoos", and claim to have an original sound and a heart for worship. Well, I'd have to say that these days it's very hard to have an original sound - this is new wave pop with a raw edge, but the band's heart is written all over the 10 songs contained herein. "Your Dance" and "Carry Me" are kinda punky, while "You're So Beautiful" has the genius touch of an accordion. The components are there for a bright future, so keep an eye out for Icthus.
