Chicago (03/Nov) | Artist Biography
I:Scintilla is a post-industrial music band from Chicago, Illinois, consisting of Brittany Bindrim (vocals/lyrics), Jim Cookas (guitar/programming), Vincent Grech (drums), and Brent Leitner (guitar/programming). I:Scintilla formed in Champaign, IL in 2003. Upon formation, they immediately wrote and recorded their debut album, The Approach, which they self-released in July 2004. The album contained early versions of many songs that would appear on later albums. After a previously full year of nonstop live performances, I:Scintilla was discovered and signed by Belgian electro label Alfa-Matrix. The band continued to work on the release of its first EP, Havestar, while providing material for a future full-length album.
The Havestar EP was released by Alfa-Matrix in the summer of 2006. In addition to a few re-mastered songs from The Approach, remixes by Combichrist, Diskonnekted, Neikka RPM, Implant, and Klutae are included.
The Havestar EP also highlights the first collaboration with producer and artist Wade Alin, who is known for music works Christ Analogue, The Atomica Project, and Scanalyzer. This collaborative process adds a consistent working sound quality that carries forward to I:Scintilla's following full-length album Optics.
After its release, Havestar peaked at #13 on the Deutsche Alternative Charts Top 20 Singles list.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
