Dyan - "Looking For Knives"
Meet DYAN. The buzzy new synth pop act, comprised of film composer duo Alexis & Sam (a.k.a Alexis Marsh and Samuel Jones) and Dan Dorff Jr., has been steadily on the rise since their singles "Days Upon Days" and "Looking for Knives" first lit up the hype machine in recent months.
The duo have worked on the project since 2012, with Marsh writing all of the songs and co-producing alongside Jones. They teamed up with Dorff, who was part of Jim James' solo band and also appeared on Ray Lamontagne’s Ouroboros, in the final stages of recording at La La Land Studio in Louisville, KY.
They’ve got a gorgeous blend of classical harmony and song shape, mixed with film composition style that’s soft and inconspicuous, layered with a beautiful synth pop vocal that is at once calling and yearning.
So today, with hands reaching out into the darkness, I choose Dyan’s “Looking for Knives” as my, keep reaching, strive for more, do not let a stumble stop your momentum, song for a, break off the parts of you that no longer serve, the shell you once needed is only slowing you down, your heart is fastest thing you can send out beyond yourself, Friday.
