Vancouver’s Dyatlove will be releasing their debut self-titled EP on Friday, May 29th along with a cassette version available from Coup Sur Coup Records that will feature an exclusive bonus track ‘Die! Kill! Pig!’. Before the EP officially drops, the band has teamed up with IDIOTEQ.com for its exclusive full stream HERE.
Recorded at Rain City Recorders with Matt Roach over the course of a few days, Dyatlove‘s sound is eclectic and diverse, at times morose and at other, heavy sludge. An EP that requires attention to take in, each song takes the listener on a ride with complex lyrical content aiming to grab attention.
Guitarist Rikki Jennings-Buford comments on the EP’s release:
“We are so stoked to have this EP finally be released. This is 2 years of our lives put into 4 songs with a treat coming soon! We feel like this is just the beginning of what we have to give and aren’t taking any time before jumping right back into it and writing more songs for you all to enjoy. We hope these 4 songs give you a good representation of our inspirations and where we could go musically, Id love to name a couple of bands right off the top of my head as far as who we sound like but I’m just not sure who they would be… and personally I feel like that is to our benefit! We feel like this EP is a good starting point for who we are as a band… right now. As life changes so do we as musicians and I’m sure we will have some left turns for you all!”
