In Rico Glaciers. The words can conjure either a courageous Antarctic expedition, or, with a bit of imagination, a popular Latin music star! Either way it’s a light-hearted representation of a varied, complex and upbeat record. Working with production guru Magoo (Regurgitator, Art vs Science, Midnight Oil), recording in an old converted church, regular car trips across a mountain, and the elusive hunt for a small town’s best 'croc' pie, all traversed to inspire a breadth of sound ideas that shine through on the new record. Led by the infectious singles You Don’t Know What You’re Missin’ and I'm Not Thinkin' About You, In Rico Glaciers will follow on from Sons Of Rico’s 2010 debut album, Reactions, and its two highly popular singles, This Madness and Miss Adventure.
When their debut album Reactions dropped in 2010, Sons of Rico introduced the world to a new sound that had artistic depth and pop simplicity alike. A quirky, unique approach to song structure led by one of the most quirky and unique voices to arrive on the Australian music scene in a very long time. Spawning three singles, Reactions was met with heavy airplay Australia-wide. Radio rotation turned to high rotation, gig invitations started becoming festival invitations, and Sons of Rico quickly found themselves one of the most in-demand acts in Australia.
Tracked in a beautiful converted church in the heart of rural Queensland, the forthcoming album – due in 2013 – is grand on a level befitting the obsession and attention-to-detail of its creators. And as even just a teaser of the album... a mere six minutes of it... You Don’t Know What You’re Missin’ and I'm Not Thinkin' About You is already Sons of Rico at their blistering best.
