It's not like the longtime vocalist and producer makes Anton LaVey references or has an austere demeanor. Quite the opposite. But on Feel it Break, Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski and bassist Dorian Wolf have crafted a dark, danceable masterpiece suitable for both ritual incantations and clubs; an album hearkening back to the sleazier side of New Wave but still deeply rooted in Stelmanis's classical and operatic upbringing. In 2008, after playing with Galaxy for three years, Stelmanis appeared on Fucked Up's The Chemistry of Common Life and released her debut solo album Join Us. Pinned as goth by everyone in Canada who didn't entirely know what goth was, the album, written and recorded entirely by Stelmanis, combined dark, yet poppy, synth melodies with the singer's operatic voice for what Chart Attack called "oddly beautiful and enchanting." Through it all, Stelmanis remained fiercely independent, managing every creative, technical and business aspect of her career herself - she embarked on six self-organized tours in the past three years including an opening slot for CocoRosie - all while trying to thrive in a country not exactly receptive to her brand of music
