Dyatlove are a rock band from Vancouver, BC, whose austere music stems from a place of deep emotion, expressing the language of the self laid bare. Though a newly-formed group, the band’s collective musical memory is long, and their backgrounds are aesthetically diverse.
New Noise are proud to premiere Dyatlove’s latest single, “The Chrysalis,” below:
Drawing inspiration and experience from the genres of hardcore, punk, emo, hip-hop and electronic music, Dyatlove seeks a sound that overwhelms sonically. They push their melodies as far as they can go, creating an emotional fallout that forces its listener to reckon with the intricacies and instabilities of being human.
Through music, Dyatlove finds a connection, and through connection, their musical community grows. Acclaimed producer Matt Roach (Rain City Records) has contributed significant expertise in engineering their self-produced debut album, while indie label Coup Sur Coup has signed Dyatlove for a cassette release deal.
The heavy, overflowing sound of Dyatlove’s storytelling style is for everyone; it is authentic art that shapes its audience slowly, earnestly, and rather forcefully. It is classic in form and radical in content: whether heard in digital or analogue, studio-produced or live, Dyatlove is a unique and essential listening experience.
On the release of “The Chrysalis,” guitarist Rikki Jennings-Buford states:
“We had been sitting on this song for over a year now and it started as a riff Sam brought to practice. We HAD planned on playing it live for 2020 but unfortunately, that wasn’t an option… As a band, we wanted to keep putting music out during the live “hiatus” and decided it was the time to get in and record it. Because of the downtime, we were able to do some more experimenting with layers and textures which was my favorite part.
We had our good friend Royce Whittaker come in and help us out which was absolutely amazing! Also blessing us on this song is Scott Whalen (Imonolith) who we got to come in and shred his vocal chords for us. This song has been a favorite of ours in rehearsal and we love what Royce did to it. We are just as stoked the New Noise is giving us the support of this release.”
