Chrome And The Ice Queen is a Twin Peaks themed project from Toronto’s Lisa Conway, Tyler Belluz, Ira Zingraff, and Karen Ng. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check them out, now’s your chance to get familiar with their sound.

We’ve had their new single Stealin’ Hearts on repeat over the last couple of days and we’re sure you’ll understand why after you take a listen in the Bandcamp player below – you can even download it for free. The song features Daniel Lee (Hooded Fang, Phedre) and will be included on their upcoming EP, Diane, which was engineered and co-produced by Ohbijou’s Heather Kirby – that’s the amazing cover art above.

The release party goes down tomorrow night, April 19th, at Cinecycle here in Toronto with Light Fires and Maloo (Maylee Todd). According to the band, “there will be projections, an installation, and diamonds and other jewels too” – sounds like our kind of party.
