Negative Scanner are a Chicago post-punk quartet formed in 2012 by Rebecca Valeriano-Flores (guitar, vocals), Tom Cassling (drums), Matt Revers (guitar), & Nick Beaudoin (bass) in the wake of the breakup of Flores & Cassling’s previous band ‘Tyler Jon Tyler.’
Trouble In Mind single “Would You Rather” – Souncloud
A fierce live unit, they honed their chops on Chicago’s robust DIY scene, propelled by the rhythm section’s dialed-in hive-mind & the twin guitar attack of Revers & Flores, whose powerful voice delivers her lyrics with passion & conviction.
The band has previously released two 7-inch singles in 2014 – the first on Trouble In Mind & second on Tall-Pat Records – this “s/t” album (due out on July 10th) is their full-length debut.
Listen to the premiere of “Would You Rather,” the first single off the album, via BROOKLYN VEGAN.
