Vancouver, Canada’s Dyatlove are gearing up to release their self-titled debut EP this year and ahead of that have revealed their single ‘Fragile Fixation’. Recorded at Rain City Recorders with Matt Roach over the course of a few days, the record will drop on 29th May and is said to offer flavors of Deafheaven, Converge and Russian Circles.
Guitarist Rikki Jennings-Buford shares his thoughts on the track: “The single is the result of Sam Caviglia (guitar/vocals) returning from a getaway with the idea for the song. It evolved into a track that is one of their more classically structured songs but they felt it would be a song that most people would gravitate to right away. Lyrically it is about the pull of depression and not knowing how to get out of it and how it can take over your entire frame of thinking. Understanding you are hurting people but not knowing how to get out of it.”
And on the EP: “I think this EP will be appreciated by more than just fans of heavy music. As musicians, we write the music that we want to hear and we aren’t fans of just metal. There is something for everyone who digs guitar-based music on this EP. We hope these 4 songs give you a good representation of our inspirations and where we could go musically.”
