DYAN have me LOOKING deep into dreamstates FOR adventures so i’d better put down any KNIVES

Every time I listen to this song I’m taken away. Lifted right out of my body and sent on a journey. I can’t promise it will take you to the same places it takes me but if your headphones are on just right and the volume properly blocks the outside world then you’ve got 6 minutes of traveling to do. Enjoy it. I sure as hell will be.

I was lucky enough to see DYAN perform their first live show ever last weekend and it was a beautiful thing. Also, “Looking For Knives” is the title track off of DYAN’s full length debut which is out July 29th. Get on it! (And check out some of the story behind this song over at Popmatters)

DYAN on repeat for DAYS UPON DAYS of dangerous dancing

Tighten up your shoelaces because DYAN’s new single “Days Upon Days” gets my feet moving quick and has me considering the kind of street parkour that should certainly not be attempted with large headphones or a body that can’t even touch its own toes. But after a proper stretch then its let loose all the new inspired dance moves.

The debut LP Looking for Knives is out July 29th. Mark the calendar.

[DEBUT] DYAN make me think that ST. JAMES must be the patron saint of melty guitar riffs

Take advantage of the opening grooves of “St James” to text your next appointment that you will be a bit late. It’s up to you if you want to mention that you will be delayed by extended stares into the potted plants on your window sill as your eyes are slowly caught in the infinite patterns of the wallpaper reaching up to the ceiling and into the back of your mind. Then that guitar solo will either break you from the trance or dig you even deeper. Putting you behind the wheel of your own wobbly buggy bouncing down that dusty road toward a happier tomorrow.

DYAN’s debut album Looking For Knives comes out July 29th. I have had it on repeat for the past few months. It is absolutely stunning in its diversity, depth, and power. Hold on for more DYAN soon…
