If I cut you with these scissors and make it go away (hold me like an old friend). ”

Lyrics from Scissors

One part Broken Social Scene (Justin Peroff) and two parts The Stills (Dave Hamelin and Liam O’Neil) make the new band known as Eight and a Half. The trio of longtime friends has been sharing stages with their respective bands as far back as 2003. However, it wasn’t until the end of 2010, after The Stills disbanded, that the members found themselves residing in Toronto and able to collaborate. With Eight and a Half, each of the guys takes new and different approaches with their musical styles. Peroff deconstructs his drumming, and includes electronic programming and loops. O’Neil focuses on creating strange ambient sounds from synthesizers and samplers. And Hamelin, a secondary vocalist of The Stills, pushes his vocals to a higher register. The result of this mix of bands and sounds is Eight and a Half’s self-titled debut, released in April 2012.
