Formed in 2015, Austin-based dream pop trio PALE DIAN ride the ashes of their previous project, Blackstone Rngrs, into smudgier, esoteric terrains. The debut LP Narrow Birth is set for a June 3rd release via Manifesto Records [pre-order here], the current home of Dead Kennedys, legendary psyche-pop band the Turtles, and modern signees Puro Instinct, Cellars, Band Aparte, and Drinking Flowers. The record explores power and weakness, birth and decay, love and abandonment, beauty and abrasiveness. Narrow Birth refers to both the fragility of life and the complete and utter randomness that we, as humans, even exist on this planet in the first place. It exposes the naked realities confronting us all: “here is me, and there is you,  so now what?
This week the band shares the moody album track “Pas De Duex.” “This song was my experiment with dub,” Ruth Ellen Smith tells BlackBook. “The recording was all an idea that I had from a demo that just needed to be fine tuned with studio love. With the help of our amazing producer Alex Bhore (This Will Destroy You), we hashed it out.”
Ruth Ellen Smith – vocals, synths, drum machine
Derek Kutzer – guitar
Nicholas Volpe – bass
“You may not know it yet…but Pale Dīan are about to become one of your favorite new bands of 2016. Hailing from Austin Texas, these are the dreamy swirling melodic sounds inspired by classic 4ad artists like Cocteau Twins and Lush, and just as surely will thrill you fans of Them Are Us Too and Drab Majesty. And you don’t hafta wait much longer with their debut LP dropping via Manifesto this spring. Mark my words…”
