This is the mission that Ty and Trey have set to accomplish as a band. They are living their dream as professional musicians writing songs that strike an emotional chord with their listeners. In roughly six years as The Icarus Account, they’ve learned a lot about writing and performing, but ultimately the goal has never changed. “We try to write songs that are honest and relatable,” Trey shares. “One of the most beautiful things about writing songs is that it proves how connected all of us really are. We get messages all the time where people tell us that our songs ‘say everything they are feeling but didn’t know how to express.’ To me it’s really humbling because I’ve never met that person before and yet they are feeling the same feelings that we had when we wrote the song.”
The Icarus Account continues to pursue this passion of moving an audience. In fact, it is writing with that same purpose and passion that makes each of their albums feel new and unique. “When we are writing with feeling, it doesn’t matter that we might be using the same four chords over and over again, the song is going to express something new,” reveals Ty. And this is what makes each record so special. The twins’ new album, “Carry Me Home,” will be released on August 28th and while the goal was the same, the result is something more intimate.
