Cares

Video / Music / Photos / Live Footage

Cares makes abstract electronic music influenced by overloaded reality. Impressionistic arrangements focus on emotional weight, shifting between serene and concussive. Based in Toronto but originally from the UK, a background in art-punk, rave, and noise is filtered through the lens of Toronto’s underground electronic scenes.

Cares has released 2 EPs and 2 full-length albums. The latest, ‘Regular Unconscious’ was released August 3rd 2018 on & Options, and was named New & Notable by Bandcamp.com. He has shared stages with Iceage, Suzanne Ciani, Rabit, Act!/Egyptrixx, Dreamcrusher, Alex Zhang Hungtai, and more.

SOUNDS LIKE:
Stress-ambient / mangled vocal artifact melody / anti-bro noise therapy / dislocated dance tropes / vloggers having breakdowns about metrics.

Hard-driving industrial beats meet harsh noise, fragmented bits of synth melody and a Oneohtrix Point Never sense of 21st century digital dread.
- NOW Magazine

Tremendously upsetting

“leaves us awash in a distant buzz, something like the relaxation in your muscles after you’ve worked out all your anger by breaking all your furniture.”
– Grayowl Point
