When instrumentalist Brendan McGarvey and vocalist Ciaran Megahey (The Autumn Stones) first collaborated musically they were still in high school.
In the Toronto suburb of Scarborough the year was 1996 and their eyes were wide. Mosh pits were still a thing and the internet was in it’s infancy. Nothing much came of their musical alliance at that time as their band quickly fizzled out and the two forged separate artistic paths. However, in 2013 after years apart playing in other bands the two would run into each other on the street as Ciaran was on his way to an open mic. A chance encounter. They spent that evening reminiscing about old times and got to talking about working on music together again. Shortly after that night they began sharing musical ideas through email. They soon had an interesting collection of very dark and cryptic doom pop. Originally setting out to create a sound that would combine Joy Division, Guided by Voices and My Bloody Valentine they later decided to throw in some dub for good measure. They would call it Loveproof in honour of the My Bloody Valentine classic Loveless. Their debut album Neon Blood however, is more than just an homage to the music of their youth. Inspired by a cornucopia of genres and eras it is music for today and an age yet to come.
