When we founded the label thirteen years ago. Duara was already a five year old chappie with a few demotapes in it’s bag. Now a good decade later, when bands have come and gone and vinyl has surpassed CD’s again, when downloads and streams rule the business, Duara is still going strong and far away from being part of the old guard. Still deconstructing and reinventing their music as the band became a fully grown adult with now eighteen years on it’s back.
Today the band presents it’s tenth release on Ikarus Records. What a feat!
As always it’s very good craftsmanship as they steer through their compact and powerful arrangements with the feel of an ease. A lighthearted, open and honest production suits the songs perfectly and makes it a growing experience as you listen to the record repeatedly..
You can order the Record here: Mailorder. Or buy it directly from the band at their releaseconcert. It’s available on vinyl only but comes with a downloadcode. We celebrate the Releaseconcert on November 25th in Frauenfeld at KAFF in Frauenfeld.
See you there!
Releaseconcert – KAFF Frauenfeld, with Granium
We are very honoured to present the newest member of the Ikarus Records family. Today we release the debut of Ester Poly. “Pique Dame” is a rollercoaster ride with lovesongs, slutwalks, whichcraft and a jazzy load of soul. But enough punch and rock and roll to make you wanna dance at times..
Order the record here and listen for yourself. It’s availabe on CD or Vinyl. (Maybe you need to wait a bit for the vinyl.. pressing plants.. you know)
Today is different. But today is good. Because its the day we release the new ‘Naked in English Class’ record. “Othering”. You know ‘Ostschweiz’? Better check em out! New Record available on Vinyl and CD in our Mailorder.
Record launch concerts:

We are Ikarus Records, still working, still dreaming, still laughing!
We’re really happy that NiEC is now a member of the Ikarus family.
Their first album ‘Counterfactuals’ is now available in our mailorder. You can order it as vinyl, CD or download it on bandcamp.
Their second album will be released in spring 2017 – we’re really looking forward to it.
Very sad news from the Kid Ikarus Headquarters. Everything is gonna change or maybe not… We are so thankful for all the music and the good memories.
“This Is It
As Michael Jackson put it perfectly: This is it! After 13 years we’re calling it quits, we’re pulling the plug and we’re breaking up. We will play our very last show at the 10th of October at Boschbar in Zürich.
Thank you very much for listening! Signing off from space station – over and out.”
So we will meet you all at the Boschbar in October!!
