video premiere: Ice Cream – MY MIND BUT ME
We were introduced to Toronto duo Amanda Crist + Carlyn Bezic aka Ice Cream by Meg Remy of U.S. Girls when she took over this very site recently — Bezic and Crist play in Darlene Shrugg with Remy, and Crist’s voice can be heard on U.S. Girls’ brilliant new record In a Poem Unlimited — and we were immediately taken by the group’s bizarre and highly infectious warped pop jams. Today, Ice Cream unveils their surreal self-directed “karaoke” video for “MY MIND BUT ME“, the jittery b-side from the duo’s limited new slime green cassette. If the slightly unsettling visuals and buzzing synths make you feel a little paranoid and anxious, that’s probably by design; Ice Cream tells us that the song is “loosely about technological surveillance– how our unvoiced thoughts are maybe the only privacy we have left in the modern world”.

Ice Cream is currently working on their second album, hopefully out sometime this fall.
