Farewell to Musician Sam Mehran

Musician Sam Mehran—founding member of Test Icicles, and also known as Outer Limits Recordings—has sadly passed away at just 31 years old. Along with Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) and Rory Attwell, Mehran started the dance-punk band when all three were teenagers. The band released just one record, but each member went on to have successful music careers—writing with other artists, as well as solo projects and more. Moving away from dance-punk, Mehran released dreampop-inflected music under monikers including Matrix Metals, the Sweethearts, and Outer Limitz. Read more at Dazed. (Photo courtesy of Ben Rayner.)
