DYLYN 's newest single “Wolf” was just released and is now available to stream and share on Soundcloud/Spotify.
"This song was the aftermath of a shitty breakup and my family divide. It was as if the universe was telling me to rebel and revert to autopilot. Shutting my feelings off for a little while was a much easier way to live - misery loves a hot guy. This new track along with my other recent releases are all authentically me. Writing them was like a therapy session dedicated to the last three years of my life. I wanted to incorporate 80s synth, punk garage style drums to match my deep vocals - mixing the old with the new. It helped pinpoint exactly how I was feeling. Through the breakups, family breakups, the ups and downs - I was able to release songs chronologically synced to the stages of my emotions. The new track "Wolf" is a direct reflection of how I felt about men post-breakup. You become reckless, rebellious and ultimately don't give a shit about other people’s feelings. Watch for my debut EP Sauvignon and a Kimono Feb 23rd!"
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
