Music oscillates as time does. Moods and motifs repeat at different junctures in time as they mold the future. A confluence of eras, styles, and emotions collide in DYLYN. The Vancouver-based singer, songwriter, and disruptor fuses moments of elation, agony, ecstasy, and triumph into an anachronistic symphony of indie-pop melodies, industrial-inflected heavy rock, and anthemic alternative. (If she stepped out of the screen of some long-lost David Lynch film about Lollapalooza 1993, no one would question it!). Her 2022 full-length debut album cements that vision. In 2018, she uncovered her independent debut EP, Sauvignon, and a Kimono. Impacting multiple strata of culture, the lead single “Secret” tallied millions of Spotify streams and inspired thousands of fan videos throughout the anime community, including Gacha Life, where she received her avatar. She remained prolific with a pair of EPs—Let You and Only Us—before the EP Make It Naked in 2021. Along the way, she architected what would become her next release. In between holding down a job in construction, she lived in a creative hive alongside various other artists and continued to write. Eventually, she hit the studio with producers Ryan Guldemond (of Mother Mother) and Parker Bossley (bassist for The Mounties, Hot Hot Heat). Out of those depths, DYLYN has created an album that “touches on subjects that are a little uncomfortable, aspects of anxiety, depression, and all our traumas,” she reveals. “I hope those who listen to this record feel a wave of nostalgia and tap into emotions of power and vulnerability. I wrote these songs from my experiences, but ultimately it’s about how the listener is digesting them within their world and perspective.” In the collision of eras and styles, DYLYN comes to life.
