I:scintilla adds new musical colour to Alfa Matrix
The 5th band to join Alfa Matrix this month are the Illinois-based quartet I:SCINTILLA which have rapidly been making their mark with their intoxicating blend of industrial beats and atmospheric creations. The seductive voice of female singer Brittany Bindrim brought the band comparisons with GARBAGE, EVANESCENCE and THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, while their intricate layers of guitars and synths bring them closer in feel to artists like GRAVITY KILLS, STABBING WESTWARD, or NIN! Their combination of hard-edged industro goth, crunchy guitars, trip-hop beats, psychedelic grooves, intense female vox and whirling electro mayhem is addictive catchy and furious all at the same time. The group precisely finding its force in its unique ability to seamlessly jump genres from fast paced saturated tracks to electro songs with a lighter feel, with a constant charismatic and alluring attitude. Definitely one of the most valuable and surprising discoveries by Alfa Matrix, their new EP will come out in Summer 2006 before the release of their second album.
