The Cocteau Twins – Iceblink Luck

Put it down to some peculiar twist of character but I prefer the notion of what the Cocteau Twins sounded like to the actual evidence. I know this because I don’t have a particularly long list of their songs that I rely on during moments of nostalgia (these hankering moments occur every other day). Mention Slowdive, Ride, the Boo Radleys or the Stone Roses and I can rattle off a long list of glorious nuggets that’ll buff up my rose tinted spectacles every time. One explanation could be that my listening years just missed out on the band at their peak (in much the same way I find nothing particularly illuminating about the Smiths). But putting all that aside I can recognise brilliance when I hear it and ‘Iceblink Luck’ is most definitely a classic of its kind (from their best album ‘Heaven or Las Vegas’). Liz Frazier’s vocals defined ethereal and with Robin Guthrie’s guitars they created the bands uniquely dreamy sound. KD

    YES. Love the Cocteau Twins (though it took me a bit of time to get into them), and this is one of my fav songs of theirs.
