ZONES release a trippy 360° VR video for THE SYZYGY, directed by Vinyl Williams, via SELF-TITLED.

“All of the stars align on “The Syzygy,” the latest otherworldly video from the twisted mind of Vinyl Williams — it’s the melted crayon melodies of Derek McKeon, whose new ZONES album, The State of Light, hits shops through Hand Drawn Dracula on October 5th and peaks with the psychedelic track” – SELF-TITLED

“There’s such an unnerving cinematic quality to Vallens. Dark yet melodic, lingering rock. A name borrowed from David Lynch’s Blue Velvet. Music videos with knife-sharp storytelling.” ~ NOISEY

“a provocative and powerful work from an emerging band that’s less interested in upholding the status quo of any genre – If this EP is any indication, they’re moving into something deeper and weirder for their sophomore album, and it’s thrilling” ~ CBC MUSIC

Toronto’s DELILUH join Hand Drawn Dracula (HDD)!

Their debut LP, Day Catcher, self-released in July and now being treated to a wider official release through HDD on May 4th. Day Catcher was recorded at home on a reel-to-reel tape machine and has slowly gained notoriety through inner circles as a no-nonsense document of their craft. Watch the video for the album’s “Creeping Tom” above.

Deliluh is an art-rock group at the centre of the west-Toronto DIY music community that has been discreetly gaining local attention on their own terms. Their shows mostly ignore the traditional circuit of bars and clubs, opting for more unconventional spaces like bakeries, libraries, veteran halls, apartments, and soon a dormant subway station. The core members are also responsible for some of the city’s latest string of house shows, taking place in the living room of their Bloordale apartment; a space known by many as Somewhere Else.  MORE…

DELILUH are performing at CMW Underground at the decommissioned Lower Bay Subway Station on May 11th (facebook) w/ Tyriqueordie, E-Saggila, and Secret Guest TBA.  Day Catcher available now on vinyl / digital via HDD HERE.
