ICE CREAM (CAN)
SCOTT HARDWARE (CAN)
Toronto’s Ice Cream is cold and precise post-punk played by the multi-instrumentalist duo of Carlyn Bezic and Amanda Crist. Also members of the magnificent Darlene Shrugg, Ice Cream sees Bezic and Crist taking a different direction: mining the fertile grounds of post-punk and electronic music, trading vocals and instruments while proving there’s a reason everyone is talking about their killer debut LP, Love, Ice Cream.
Scott Hardware is the new synth-pop incarnation of Scott Harwood, who previously recorded as Ken Park. His new six-track EP, Mutate Repeat Infinity, finds the artist connecting his love of both dance music and new wave pop, while subtly taking on queer political issues in his lyrics.
