Veterans of two well-liked Toronto indie bands have come together for a new venture, Eight and a Half. At the helm is Broken Social Scene drummer Justin Peroff. Guitarist/vocalist Dave Hamelin and keyboardist Liam O’Neil, late of the Stills, are also in the lineup. Arts & Crafts releases Eight and a Half’s self-titled album on February 7. Here you can check out the video for ultra-moody lead single “Scissors” and download the track plus a couple remixes.
