NEW ALBUM BY THE SCROLL: The neo-wave/shoegaze/cyberpunk band just released “It Will Never Come, Lover”

I wanted to do an eclectic soundtrack for an imaginary futuristic 80’s film,” says Jason Deeh Pitr vocalist and guitar player of Montreal band The Scroll. “Something that would fit well during the Tech Noir club scene in The Terminator or Taffey’s Bar in Blade Runner.”

Out now is “It Will Never Come, Lover”. A 17 track album full of guitar driven but heavily electronic influences songs. Such as the opener “Hybristophilia.” There’s even some Bowie in it with a funky saxophone. The accompanying video is a trip through the dark. The dark of the 1980s.

I like contrast. The 80s had a lot of that. Miami Vice, for example, would have these florescent colors and cheesy music on the surface, but would also have this undercurrent of darkness, sexuality and danger. That’s sort of how I see [The Scroll],” Jason Deeh Pitr explains.

Although the band primarily consists of him working as songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer for a live setting the band turns into a five piece group. Mostly women perform on stage: Maria S, Becca Field, Katherine Paradis, Samuel Cadieux and Ursule Marion.
