Under The Ice Cream Parlor are NOT “Ugly”!
“Ugly” is not about beautiful people per se, but rather about our somewhat twisted idea of beauty. You don’t envy young people growing up today under bombardment photoshopped faces and touched-up bodies. That ideal is ugly. Under The Ice Cream Parlor are a pop band from Halmstad, Sweden (from under an ice cream parlor in Halmstad actually).
The band make music they like. Simple. Guitar and keyboard-based pop regarding subject matters that they have opinions on. Under the Ice Cream Parlor are Thomas Carlsson — bass, vocals, Rickard Andersson — guitars, Kaspar Dahlqvist — keys and Fredrik Risberg — drums. “Ugly” follows their previous release, “I Believe”, one of four tracks the band have released so far this year.
