CROTCH (2018)

Nanaimo, BC

Originally a longform noise act, the duo of Isabel Ford and Jeremy Van Wyck (both also of Shearing Pinx) use electronics and ripping guitar to build industrial noisescapes around Ford’s vocals. Sometimes this lends to an inhuman sublime quality, but often it veers into a creepy brood. Either way, CROTCH have weaponized mood to an extremely captivating effect.
