Dream-pop trio Pale Dīan celebrates release of 'Narrow Birth' at Swan Dive on 06.03

Dream-pop trio Pale Dīan celebrates release of 'Narrow Birth' at Swan Dive on 06.03

Austin-based dream-pop trio Pale Dian, set to release their debut album Narrow Birth on June 3rd via Manifesto Records, offers whirling melodies and glowing textures reminiscent of unforgettable dream-pop acts such as Cocteau Twins and Lush, although they often enjoy adding a peculiar touch of dissonance to their tunes. Earlier this year, the trio released “In A Day” (streaming below), the first single off their upcoming album, characterized by a uber-celestial melody and big choruses featuring wall of guitars borrowed from shoegazer. Their latest single “Pas De Deux” (also streaming) strips down their sound leaving behind the fuzz of their previous single, and creating an equally mesmerizing atmosphere that allows lead singer Ruth Ellen Smith’s echoey vocals to exert their haunting magnetism. After playing a record release show for Narrow Birth at Swan Dive on June 3rd, the band will be on tour through the end of July with Ringo Deathstar and Stargazer Lillies on select dates. - John Honan
