Marrying a complex new sound (incorporating industrial, minimalism and prog) influenced by Bristol’s vital avant-garde scene, LICE present a new set of satirical doctrines and focus on lyrical experimentation.

Debut album ‘WASTELAND: What Ails Our People Is Clear’ (Jan 2021) is a concept album structured as an experimental short story, taking cues from Brian Catling, William Burroughs and Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Its core argument is that, through reworking the prevailing forms of satirical song lyrics, we can build more nuanced popular discourse around the implicit forms of bias that ail us – the song lyric being the most widely disseminated and commonly ‘engaged with’ form of creative writing there is.
