Kieran has long been credited with having one of the most distinctive voices in the UK music scene, but his new band are spreading their wings further a field, with an army of American fans downloading the album’s centrepiece track ‘Hologram’, a haunting lament for 9/11.

iko recently appeared at the Carling Academy, Islington, as part of ‘Best Of In The City ’. They were one of only five bands selected to play the annual event, which has a track record of unearthing ‘the next big thing’, such as Coldplay and The Darkness.

The majority of ‘I Am Zero’ was recorded at New Rising Studios in rural Essex and produced by the band and Mark Daghorn. The band have added two new tracks, exclusive to the UK edition.
“According to the ITC 2005 booklet, this was iko’s first live show, but it’s hard to believe it when you bask in the glory of their accomplished sound. Their image is sorted, their stage is set with fairy lights, and the light and shade of their delicate indie, all smothered in orchestration and as crafted and sparkling as a Faberge egg, has all the hallmarks of third album togetherness. Make a date in your diary for gig number two…”
