Kontravoid is the brooding dark electronic project of Toronto based Cam Findlay. Some of you Witch Bitches may also know him as the former drummer of Crystal Castles. He played the Club Elysium in Austin, TX on 3/16/13 as part of the Moog/Switched On showcase. And what a mother-fucking moment as he had the crowd moving to his rather dark pulsating beats emanating from his dark as fuck analogue synths. His music has that definitive Industrial/New Wave feel to it that you original Cats may be used to. My helper Eli pointed out that during the performance his voice reminded him of Ian Curtis, at other times, Andrew Eldritch of Sisters Of Mercy with the beautiful electronic noise of Cabaret Voltaire. The two songs that stood out and exemplified this, we agreed, were “Silent Visions” and “Age of Descent”. Fucking get on this shit pronto!
