Greetings from Manchester, we hope everyone had a great Christmas, now that Boxing Day is over we enter that time when no one knows what day or date it is or when we are due back at work.

It's the perfect time to kick back, and absorb all that new music that you have been meaning to catch up on.

So on that note we bring you 'Dreamland' an absolute killer of an EP from Salt Lake City duo BYSTS. Described as a noise rock duo based in Los Angeles, California, blending shoegaze, darkwave and psychedelia.


Georgia and The Vintage Youth - A Jazzy, Big Band, Sound is Crossing the Pond

Creating a sound reminiscent of Massive Attack, Love & Rockets and Telescopes with beautifully lush pop arrangements accompanied by moody hypnotic swells. The response has been off the scale with airplay from all over the globe and it's not hard to see why.



BYSTS
Dreamland EP 
11 January 2019

With the release of their singles, 'Killer on the Road,' 'Taste', and 'Speed' in early Summer 2016, the dreamy Post-Punk duo from Salt Lake City, BYSTS, through being brash, explorative and genre-bending, are causing an electrifying reaction.

Garnering attention from outlets like American Songwriter, Sounds Better With Reverb, The Blog That Celebrates Itself, The Sound of Confusion, SYFFAL, Psychgazer, among others. BYSTS, later caught the ear of independent east coast label The Rolling People Records, who in the Summer of 2018 released, BYSTS, exclusive vinyl only debut album, 'Killer On The Road'. Comprised of previously unreleased tracks by BYSTS and other songs from their self-released album 'Offer Your Throat'.

The duo, multi-instrumentalists Bryan Holbrook and Stefanie Marlow, together, combine noisey, fuzzed-out guitars, rhythmic drum beats and visceral, tangible sounds.

The Sound of Confusion describes the duo as, "You could call it coldwave, you could call it darkwave, but if anyone's invented a genre called post-apocalypticwave, then this must be what it sounds like. The noise they make is huge and feels like brute force." SYFFAL, when reviewing BYSTS single, 'Speed', wrote, "...oozing evil like a motherfucker, that's BYSTS. ...it's fucking chilling." SLC WEEKLY said, "It's a prismatic filtration of howling, reverb-drenched guitars. It's a dangerous sojourn into a sonic hurricane in search of the vocal harmonies within the storm's eye."

Through BYSTS evolution, Bryan Holbrook and Stefanie Marlow have shared stages with Autolux, Black Angels, Neon Trees, Black Lips, Mini Mansions, Ben Kweller, Dead Meadow, Spindrift, Strange Boys, White Rabbits, Dengue Fever, Swervedriver, The Growlers, White Hills, and Crystal Stilts.

This is their new EP, 'Dreamland' and it's killer.
