Ice Balloons Interview

NYC band Ice Balloons are consistently dubbed as a super group. To an extent that may be true but the group are first and foremost friends who have come together to create art with absolute freedom and room to explore. Consisting of Sean Kennerly of Samiam, TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone, Sean Powell of Fuckemos, Midnight Masses’ Giselle Reiber, B.A. Miale, Rob Bryn of Wild Yaks and Dan Scinta, their music is a collage of riotous punk, New York no wave, garage rock and noise all rolled up into one event of a listen. To call it energetic would be an understatement and in terms of their stage show, well let’s just say that it is probably one of the liveliest performances one could see…ever! Wilder than wild, the ‘common fly’ charges about on stage singing vocals and at some point in the show there may even be sparks popping and flying about on his body.

ColoRising Mixes 30: Girls In Synthesis

If there is one group here to shake things up in music it’s London’s Girls In Synthesis. With a sound raging with punk fury, the group released their double A-side record ‘The Mound/Disappear’ in early March of this year. The band’s energy hit like the impact of a bullet train at full speed with much of it properly translated at their live shows. After all, it isn’t uncommon to see some of the members jumping into the crowd whilst playing. With the current political climate of the world seeming to spiral into a frenzy, the sound of Girls In Synthesis couldn’t be needed more to cut through the current fluff floating about.
