Portland, Oregon's Icarus The Owl are back on AltPress with an exclusive cover of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles.” Come on, who can resist this song?

Touring is already in progress on the back of 2015's Pilot Waves, their label debut for Blue Swan Records (owned by Dance Gavin Dance's Will Swan). New music is planned for 2017, but for now, enjoy this fun cover for your Friday.

When asked how the prog/pop-rockers came to a concensus on “A Thousand Miles,” the band told us "This song is timeless to us and we've always jokingly played the main riff while sound checking on stage. We decided it was time to do a proper cover. Also, the scene in White Chicks.”
