California band Dye
The song was produced by Oh Sees member Tomas
Before they were Dye, Christopher Adams (guitar, vocals), Nikolas Soelter (guitar), and Jeff Day (bass) created dissonant noise rock as Never Young. The Bay Area band were signed to Father/Daughter Records. Joined by Greta Soos (drums), Dye’s sound builds on their previous work, but pursues something darker and more dynamic.
Songs like title track Psychic Data showcase the band’s range, starting stripped down before blossoming with orchestral flourishes. Hostage pairs stark, off-kilter verses with an anthemic chorus a la Royal Headache, while Pain Expo is all angles, it’s scraping guitars building to an almost shoegaze take on Interpol’s post-punk.
‘Psychic Data’ is available to pre-order via Copper Mouth Records. It’s out on August 2.
