It’s currently a crowded scene for female vocalists but Brooklyn singer-songwriter Lia Ices (we don't know how to pronounce it either) is quietly being heralded as one of the most talented and inventive. Taken from her recently released album ‘Grown Unknown’, this haunting song is the perfect remedy for a long week.

As a graduate of New York’s Tisch School of the Arts, Ices knows a few things about musical composition and after its simple start ‘Dephne’ leaps to life with punchy piano chords and buzzing guitars. With its beautiful video and subtle vocals from Jagjaguwar label-mate Bon Iver (safely back to his folky roots after his recent dalliance with Kanye), it showcases Ices’ ethereal balladry nicely.
