Just Announced: Ice Balloons, the side project from TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone, at Everybody Hits

Brooklyn-based six-piece Ice Balloons, which most notably includes Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, will play Everybody Hits on Friday, Oct. 13. They’ll be joined by Jersey experimental rockers Fond Han.

Ice Balloons released their debut EP back in 2013. Its sound goes much deeper into the realm of garage/punk synth-noise compared to its members’ other bands. And their live shows are just as much to be seen as they are to be heard, featuring projected video, pina-colada scented smoke and “a whirl of chaotic noises.”
