Let It Snow 03:00
Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Let me stay just some more Cover me up head to toe Lay me down and let my head rest I slip away as I veer Losing track of what is real Often wonder if I’m still here Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Crooked people, crooked towns Alley ways with eerie clowns Make me shiver as I close my eyes Flying high with no aim Icy steeples in my way Wake me up and make them go away Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Let me stay just some more Cover me up head to toe Lay me down and let my head rest Slipping up as I veer Losing track of what is real Often wonder if I’m still here Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Oh, let it snow Oh, let it snow How forgiving, how evolved Am I with you when you hold me Oh, let it go Oh, let it flow Like the river down the road All I need is you to hold me Hold me tight You’re all I got

Yeah, yes, I want it bad It’s burning my eyes and soul But I’m not backing down No, I’m not backing down How many a time I saw the way out through that door But I’m not turning back No, I’m not going back Voices deafening at times Telling me “Let it go!” But go where, I ask Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down Every now and then I do lose my way in the crowd And I tumble down Yes, I tumble down But when I get up And look up ahead far beyond My wings open wide Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down I know I have it now It’s filling my chest and heart And I’m breathing calm Yes, I’m breathing strong I’m ready to get on Get rid of my bags and stones And embrace the light Turn wrong into right Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down Daunt me, doubt me, play me up Twist my arm but better hold me down Trick me, quit me, stand me up Toss me out but better pin me down

Set to Go 03:51
It started out as a fun game Not any different than hide-and-seek But no one else understood then They pointed fingers and called you a freak You're set to go on a glorious road Your star will glow on your journey home So many times you looked for his queue Through all the mazes and runways You didn't care just as long as he knew You'd follow him now and always You'd follow him till the stars run out Or till the endpoint of time It doesn't matter how long or far Infinity is your sign You're set to go on a glorious road Your star will glow on your journey home The time has come to follow his sound Space is calling you out there You realize with your feet off the ground Nothing's holding you back here You turn around for the last time But there's no reason to doubt now Bid farewell and clear your mind And take a trip of a lifetime The time has come to follow his sound Space is calling you out there You realize with your feet off the ground Nothing's holding you back here You turn around for the last time But there's no reason to doubt now Bid farewell and clear your mind And take a trip of a lifetime Take a trip of a lifetime

Carry It on 04:24
Pinned to my sleeve, strapped to my back Over my shoulder, deep in my chest Pinned to my sleeve, strapped to my back Over my shoulder, deep in my chest When I decided to go It was best for all There was no place to call home And you knew it all along Nostalgic as it may seem Going back would be insane We never saw eye to eye You were a stranger right from the start Carry it on, carry it on You'll be with me wherever I go Carry it on, carry it on Even time won't let me go No matter what You taught me so many things I wish I never had learned Your tough love made me weak Just when I needed to be strong Time has scrubbed all the wounds I've been healing and letting go But it still pains me when I count All those years we lost Carry it on, carry it on You'll be with me wherever I go Carry it on, carry it on Even time won't let me go Carry it on, carry it on You'll be with me wherever I go Carry it on, carry it on Even time won't let me go No matter what Pinned to my sleeve, strapped to my back Over my shoulder, deep in my chest Pinned to my sleeve, strapped to my back Over my shoulder, deep in my chest Carry it on, carry it on You'll be with me wherever I go Carry it on, carry it on Even time won't let me go Carry it on, carry it on You'll be with me wherever I go Carry it on, carry it on Even time can't let me go Pinned to my sleeve, strapped to my back Over my shoulder, deep in my chest Pinned to my sleeve, strapped to my back Over my shoulder, deep in my chest Carry it on, carry it on You'll be with me wherever I go Carry it on, carry it on Even time won't let me go Carry it on, carry it on You'll be with me wherever I go Carry it on, carry it on Even time can't let me go No matter what

Suppose I have a funny little story That maybe I’ll share with you Sometime It is about a girl whose name is Dory She nearly broke my heart But that’s alright She left me low and dry for someone naughty And that right there was the blessing In disguise But now she’s gone But now she’s gone for good Yeah, now she’s gone And now she’s gone for good My lucky star had better purpose for me She told me that there was a place Where my soul mate waits I turned the page and there she lay before me More beautiful than life itself She took my breath away And now I’m gone And now I’m gone for good And now I’m gone And now I’m gone for good And now I’m gone (Every bad for good) And now I’m gone for good And now I’m gone (Every bad for good) And now I’m gone for good

Smile 03:37
Everybody's got a reason to smile Everybody's got a reason to smile When you feel yourself go down And your feet don't hold your ground It is time to be reminded What it is you haven't found Is it fame and recognition Is it wealth and fancy friends Or maybe just by definition You don't know how to mend Everybody's got a reason to smile Everybody's got a reason to smile Just take a good look all around you All this vanity just ain't right And your best friend's down and busted You can't help him in his fight The things you take for granted Are in fact the ones that count Learn to cherish every moment And smile, just smile Just smile wide and bright Come on out and let me see you shine Spread your wings and dive into the sky Let the wind caress your hope and set you free Embrace the rain and kiss the sun Show me how it's done I wanna see you having fun You got all the reasons, all the reasons in the world Let me see you smile, let me see you smile First you hug the morning Then you quickly wave good-night And it happens all so fast You're dumbfound looking back Come a day when you will find me Seeming lonely, looking sad And you quickly realize All you got to do is smile To make it alright

What a way to start the day Is what I’m humming in my head As I pull away the drapes To let the shiny golden rays What a way to start the day With you just a pinch away I can’t believe I’m here to stay As I embrace the light and sway What a day to forge ahead Beyond the valley of the dead Away form everything I dread Away from sorrow and regret Oh-ho I need to tell it like it is Every time you laugh I melt away Oh-ho I gotta say it like it is Every time you cry I fade away What a day to celebrate The very moment that we met I still remember how we said This time it will be till the end What a day to concentrate On everything that makes it great Forget the silly little frets That try to trip us every day What a day to see ahead To hug the future and reflect Standing tall and full of zest With you beside me at my best Oh-ho I need to tell it like it is Every time I look at you I shine Oh-ho I gotta say it like it is Never have I felt so much in line Oh-ho I need to tell it like it is Every time you laugh I melt away Oh-ho I gotta say it like it is Every time you cry I fade away Oh-ho I need to tell it like it is Every time I look at you I shine Oh-ho I gotta say it like it is Never have I felt so much in line Oh-ho I need to tell it like it is Every time you laugh I melt away Oh-ho I gotta say it like it is Every time you cry I wilt away

It makes me blue I don't know why Just opened up my eyes The sun is soothing but I'm sad More tired than last night Is it right I should remind me To be happy and content Say it loud to believe it How did I descend? Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul Yes, I wasted quite some time But how could I have learned? See me blue, I sing to you A tear is cutting loose It is not a battle The key is to endure Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul And now you know How blue, how naked Is my soul when I sing this song to you Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power It takes me home from wherever I've gone And now you know How blue, how naked Is my soul when I sing this song to you Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power It takes me home from wherever I've gone

Because you asked I’m going to tell you How my road brought me here where I belong I wanted acclaim, I needed admission Into a world full of fame and glamour life I hopped on a plane, a mustang of freedom That took me away far beyond from where I was born I landed these docks across the Atlantic Eager for crowns, gold and grandeur in Kodak dreams But then I began the schooling of life The one that is real and the one that is tough I learned from mistakes, my ego got roughed Down to the depths of my natural self Because you asked I’m going to tell you I paid an arm and a leg to earn this prize The man I was then, cosmetic and fragile I buried behind and my soul is placid again Because you asked I’m going to tell you The warnings were there, on the wall, for all to see I trained to be me, I learned to be helpful And tend to the child deep inside, unspoiled and true All of those years I fought to become The one that I always imagined I’d be The path was abrupt, tough and obscure I couldn’t perceive how it ends or begins All of those days of hard work and strain All of them turned to be wonderful grains And then there were sprouts, the blossoms of self They taught me to be as sincere as I can

I Had Enough 06:18
I still remember how we cheated death And how we didn’t give a damn if we got hurt I still remember all the nights we spent Roaming streets without a care in the world And every time I look into the past I realize quite fast that those were sacred times Abound with innocence and pure beliefs I wish there was a way for me to get it back I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity) I had enough, I had enough I still remember all the dirty streets The smell of borsch and meet, the clutter in a heap I still remember that December When we all made a pact to never turn our back I still relive that sharp adrenaline Rushing through my veins and pounding in my head And feel the crater hole it left inside As if a part of me is forever dead I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity) I had enough, I had enough I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity)

about

Provenance, the latest album by Montreal-based Icicle, is set to release March 12, 2019. The album will be available to download and stream through all major online retailers. Fans can also purchase hard copy CDs through BandCamp.

In line with Icicle’s previous work, described as “genre-bending” (Darcia Helle, Sound Waves Review) and “pushing his own sound to the forefront” (Richard Lyne, The Appetizer), these 12 new tracks playfully point to highly eclectic influences, all the while furthering Icicle’s ever-shifting, distinctive sound.

Krassy Halatchev, the composer, singer, bass player and driving force behind Icicle, describes the album as life-affirming, built around themes of beginnings, growth, evolution, and love: “It reveres the miracle of life, birth, and growth, as well as strength, endurance, persistence, fight — all the necessary elements for one’s survival. Of course, love is the backbone of it all. As David Bowie says, ‘The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.’”

Fans who’ve come to know what Jeremy Bregman from Medium.com called Icicle’s “giant melting pot of different sounds, ranging from groovy, bouncy bass lines to tracks with a new wave, 80’s feel” won’t be disappointed with the buoyant Let It Snow or the defiant I Had Enough. The 11th track, Because You Asked, features lyrics by Antonia Gueorguieva, based off a verbatim-style notation of a conversation with Halatchev. The record also features vocals on select tracks by Laurie Gordon and Kat Howell.

Halatchev has charmed Canadian and international audiences for over two decades, following his defection from communist Bulgaria with the band The Clouds. From 1996 to 2012, he was a core member of the Montreal-based band Chiwawa. Since going on his own in 2013 as Icicle, he has released six albums. Provenance now marks Icicle’s seventh solo LP.
