Not Misunderstanding Litotes





Icarus Phoenix is Drew Danburry (gtr/vox), Eli Sims (drums), Leena Rhodes (gtr/vox/synth) and Brendan Russell (bass).
The band originally formed in Missoula, Montana (2020) and has had 5 different lineups, one of them playing Treefort Music Fest in Boise, ID (2021). Currently based in Baltimore and formed by friendships and connections Drew made working at Old Bank Barbers.

Having built a cult following from their 3 studio albums and 8 singles, 2024 looks extremely promising as they plan to release 6 + singles, 1 EP and an LP this year as well as an upcoming Japan/America tour. Plans are in the works for a UK tour in the Fall as well.




Not Misunderstanding Litotes

All I want is to believe and to hope
Love will overcome the fear in our soul
But we perpetuate the hurt that we feel
Till we're covered up in scars that won't heal
Oh can I see?
That new tattoo of me?

It's a pattern that we all just repeat
Never growing or learning how to see
The objective truth is outside ourself
Feeling joy is when we leave our own hell
The pain inside
To be trapped in our mind

This is a reminder to myself
That when negativity creeps into my head
To redirect my eyes on the waterfall
All the beauty that's surrounding us all
And here we are
This is our life right now
