Born and raised in communist Bulgaria, Krassy Halatchev (Icicle) grew up with a few tight friends who were true music maniacs. Being one of them as well, he studied and analyzed every note of the repertoire of his favorite bands (Pink Floyd, Genesis, The Police, The B-52’s, Depeche Mode, The Cure…). With a little help from his friends (and band mates) he bought his first bass guitar - a Fender Music Master. It turned out to be the best investment he ever made, for it changed Krassy’s life.
Following years of ardent practicing and playing in garages and clubs, the skilled musician fled from his native country and landed in Montreal one freezing-cold winter day in 1990. His brother-like peers from the band The Clouds accompanied him in this new and exiting adventure. At the time they were passionately devoted to the 90’s psychedelic rock. After many subway and club gigs, considerable magazine and newspaper coverage, and two full-length albums, the members of the band decided to explore new horizons, this time separately.
In 1996 Krassy joined the band Chiwawa. Produced by Steve Witfield (The Cure, The Mission, The Trash Can Sinatras) and recorded at The Mission’s studio in Bristol, Chiwawa’s first album The Sick World of Yona won the attention of the media.
Becoming a core member of the group, Krassy composed and sang a major part of Chiwawa’s seven albums worth of material.
In 2014 Icicle released his first solo album, “Resurgence”. Multifaceted and very seasoned, this 13-piece oeuvre represents a passage door between the past and the future, a quintessence of lessons learned and dreams that lay ahead.
His second album, “Theorems” (official release date – September 15, 2015) cements Icicle’s musical path where pop, rock and funk elements reminisce of the 80s, 90s and 2000s. It curls upward on a journey of his life’s spiral. For full discography, tour dates, lyrics, photos, news and more please visit here

Montreal writer and composer Krassy Halatchev (Icicle) invites us in the universe of his latest album – a world of sensual fantasies, eerie nightmares and biting reality. The third instalment of his solo career titled “Reverie”, releases officially on April 3rd, 2016.
Matured and eclectic sound (think of a blend between Depeche Mode, Placebo, Simple Minds, The Black Keys and Beck) fills the 48-minute record.
This latest studio full-length consists of 12 unmistakable compositions that are woven with passion and conviction. They span through delicate slow rhythms, voluptuous mid-range and furious up-tempo.
Icicle takes us through his world of tenderness (“Nothing In You”), apocalypse (“Fools Refuse To Learn”), personal disappointment (“What Day Is Today”), intimate stasis (“Boggles My Mind”) and social criticism (“Paranoid Pigeon”, “The Edge On Which We Run”).
Icicle’s life’s perspective has closely tied him together with Florida-based poet Joel Jenkins, the man behind the integral and deep-felt lyrics of 4 songs on this record. This collaboration has given life to compositions that are extremely personal and universal at the same time. "Paranoid Pigeon", the album’s first single, is a perfect example of their remarkable teamwork. The song is simply contagious, driven by a hypnotic groove and infectious hooks. Its imagery reflects the zeitgeist of today and the chorus resonates long after the song's end.
can pre-order “Reverie” on BandCamp starting February 19th, 2016. It will also be available starting April 3rd at every major online retailer (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Napster, Rhapsody, HMV, Tower Records, CD Universe…).
