AJ Davila's solo project brings together the guitar-fuzz of '60s garage, the raw energy of 70's punk and the irrepressibly catchy choruses of 80's pop, a combination that Pitchfork described as "the balance between sweetness and distortion."
"This lurching, fuzzed-out act – fronted, naturally by a half-man, half fly creature–is just the thing to make you feel you've stepped into another dimension." –New York Observer
"el futuro de la musica" –Indie Rocks, Mexico
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 (FuckEmos), 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.
