I:Scintilla is a post-industrial music band from Chicago, Illinois, consisting of Brittany Bindrim (vocals/lyrics), Jim Cookas (guitar/programming), Vincent Grech (drums), and Brent Leitner (guitar/programming).
I:Scintilla formed in Champaign, IL in 2003. Upon formation, they immediately wrote and recorded their debut album, The Approach, which they self-released in July 2004. The album contained early versions of many songs that would appear on later albums.
After a previously full year of nonstop live performances, I:Scintilla was discovered and signed by Belgian electro label Alfa-Matrix. The band continued to work on the release of its first EP, Havestar, while providing material for a future full-length album.
The Havestar EP was released by Alfa-Matrix in the summer of 2006.
