Ontario based electro project DAVIDS premiere “Crown of Burrs. The song propels forward with a combination of industrial grooves and rock riffs, while the vocals arrive from a new wave nightmare. ‘Crown of Burrs’ is a song that is perpetually building and it races to an elevated height.
"The inspiration for “Crown of Burrs” came after a long night of indigestion, caused by a Reuben sandwich of questionable freshness that I’d purchased at a roadside kiosk just outside of Birtle, Manitoba in August 1998. At one point I was vomiting with such ferocity out of the back of the camper that I heard an audible POP! in my spine. I lost consciousness. When I finally came to the bass line for the song was already in my mind, and it looped there for the remainder of the trip. Once I’d gotten home and dropped off the last of the scout troop I barricaded myself in the makeshift studio I’d cobbled together in a dumpster behind the local Giant Tiger. 19 years later I emerged, finished track in hand, with a pet rat that I’d taught to speak. His name is Brad and we are quite happy. Enjoy the song. Thank you. "

DYLYN just released her new single “Secret” and it’s now available to stream and share on Soundcloud/Spotify.
"This one is personal. My life was turned upside down and as a result this song emerged. “Secret” became therapeutic, it helped me deal with this crazy thing that happens to so many people, yet often remains a taboo subject; especially in song. Writing this new single gave me a chance to connect with people, with my fans whose parents also split up due to infidelity; it became a way of reaffirming for myself and others, "you are not the only one going through this." My last single “Mimosa” and now “Secret” are both authentically me. Though deeply personal, I’m excited to be sharing this side of myself with the world."
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
