Epicentre is one of the most unique bands I've ever featured in the (almost) year I've been running this little thing.
First of all, they're kids. As in, 16 and 17 years old. But highly respected and all around amazing experimental band Efterklang already call themselves fans, and their music is incredibly adventurous and advanced for a band so young and presumably inexperienced. My only complaint would be that they're slightly overambitious at times, but even when they falter, they're never uninteresting.
Would I have posted on this band if they weren't teenagers? Absolutely. But I won't deny that makes them all the more remarkable and intriguing to me. They create otherworldy, icy soundcapes that bring to mind bands like Mum and Efterklang if they were fronted by Bjork. Listen, preferably alone in a dark room:

Download more songs at the band's myspace page, and keep your fingers crossed for a proper release. (thanks to reader Shoeshine Boy for introducing me to this band)
