I Scintilla

Chicago’s I:Scintilla (pronounced eye-sin-til-uh) have jumped from recording demo songs in a bedroom to collaborating with some of modern music’s best artists and releasing music on an international level. Fronted by Brittany Bindrim (vocals/words) and backed by Jim Cookas (guitar/programming), Vincent Grech (drums), and Chad Mines (bass), the group seamlessly fuses electronic and rock elements while pushing the boundaries of pop music.

Chicago’s I:Scintilla (pronounced eye-sin-til-uh) have jumped from recording demo songs in a bedroom to collaborating with some of modern music’s best artists and releasing music on an international level. Fronted by Brittany Bindrim (vocals/words) and backed by Jim Cookas (guitar/programming), Vincent Grech (drums), and Chad Mines (bass), the group seamlessly fuses electronic and rock elements while pushing the boundaries of pop music. Bindrim’s intensely seductive voice and insightful words paint a dark picture of loss, redemption, and introspection and are delivered via insatiably catchy hooks. The music drapes the mood with intricately layered synthesizers, grinding guitar riffs, and a mix of live and programmed drums. The quartet’s unique sound has drawn comparisons to Garbage, Curve, and The Birthday Massacre.

Upon forming in 2003, I:Scintilla quickly wrote and recorded songs that would be part of their self-released debut album, [album artist=I:Scintilla]The Approach (July 2004). After consistent critical praise and a solid year of live performances, a buzz began to spread and record labels began to take notice. The band eventually signed with Belgian electro label, Alfa Matrix, and joined an impressive roster that includes Front 242 and Collide.

On Havestar (August 2006), the first release with their new label, the band worked with famed electronic producer Wade Alin (The Atomica Project, Christ Analogue) and the result was four electrifying recordings with top notch production elements.
