Ice Balloons (Volar Records)
-Ice Balloons, Ex- TV on The Radio, Midnight Mases and Samiam
A Brooklyn Based Ice Balloons’ eight-song debut EP came out in October of 2013, featuring the track Night Slave that had a video release on Vice/Noisey the following month. The band is a hodgepodge of musicians -Sean Powell (F** Emos), Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), Dan Scinta, Rob Bryn (Wild Yaks) Giselle Reiber (Midnight Masses), B.A. Miale and a common fly on vocals – but more in a garage punk synth-noise vein than any of the bands from which the members derive.
In live shows, Ice Balloons strive for maximum spectacle, with video projections (B.A. Miale), piña-colada scented smoke and a whirl of chaotic noises, all grounded by a 60’s garage punk skeleton.
