Chicago’s I:Scintilla (pronounced “eye-sin-til-uh”) have spent the last eight years on a constant pursuit of musical exploration and artistic refinement. Never happy with genre boundaries, the quartet has taken its metal-infused electronica signature and drawn in elements of synth pop, trip-hop, and indie electro. Their latest effort, “Dying & Falling” (2010), masterfully blends such influences into an intelligent collection of powerful, introspective, and catchy songs. From the intense dance-rock of “Swimmers Can Drown” to the thoughtful down-tempo groove of the title track, the album pleases on many levels and is a testament to the band’s maturity. Their upcoming fourth album is an ambitious continuation of their musical travels and is set for release in summer 2012.
In recent years, Chicago's ultrasweaty industrial dance dorkstorm, THE GOTHSICLES, have played some of the most talked about live shows at some of the most premiere industrial music festivals around the globe. Compounding a ruinous mix of crass humor, video games and geek culture with an unapologetic EBM affinity, The Gothsicles' 2011 release "Industrialites & Magic" (WTII Records) reached the #1 spot on Amazon.com for "Most Downloaded" in the "Goth & Industrial" category.
