We are pleased to announce the looong awaited U.K release of Sacramento resident Daniel Trudeau (aka Pregnant)’s first release for Icecapades - Life Hard : I Try.

The album was composed and recorded with the assistance of fellow Sacramento musician Raleigh Moncrieff close to Daniel’s home in Placerville, deep within the Sierra Nevada Foothills of Northern California, at a time when Daniel and his partner Jocelyn, a recording artist in her own right working under the moniker Alak, were expecting their first child.

Neatly comprising forty five minutes, and fourteen richly textured and compelling pop songs, Life Hard : I Try ably showcases Trudeau’s gift for soft memorable melodies, and an ability to tie together strands of glitchy electronic music with more traditional lyrical pop writing.

To celebrate the release we’ve commissioned Manchester based artist, illustrator & zine store proprietor David Bailey to create the accompanying video for album track ‘Dog’. In addition to which we’re also offering the track up for free from our bandcamp page.
