Boston's Dyr Faser drop second single Den of Sables ahead of Trio EP release
Boston-based trio Dyr Faser are releasing the single Den of Sables from their forthcoming EP Trio, which was preceded by the first single Estranged. On Trio, the band cleverly blends post-punk, electronic, and psychedelia, often with southern guitar elements, contributed by indie rock icon Thalia Zedek.
Dyr Faser is comprised of Eric Boomhower (vocals, guitar, synth, Casio), Thalia Zedek (guitar, slide, backing vocals) and Katherine 'Kate' Murray (synth). Although multi-instrumentalist Eric Boomhower originally began Dyr Faser as a solo project, he was eventually joined by Thalia Zedek. After many recordings, buzz-worthy shows and a successful tour, they were joined by Kate Murray on synth and again head out for additional touring in both the USA and Canada.
Their music has been described as entrancing, hypnotic, dreamy, kraut-rockish, and meditative. On the Trio EP, they fuse the European synth avant garde and krautrock leanings of Eric Boomhower and Katherine Murray with the American guitar stylings of Thalia Zedek. For the first time in the band's history, Eric and Thalia sing together, sharing vocals prominently on Hybrid Souls. Drum loops, synth swirl, dueling guitars and melodic vocals make for a hypnotic and inimitable release.
Dyr Faser's next live appearance is on October 12 in Cambridge, MA at The Middle East-Corner, where they will be joined by Public Speaking and Anda Volley.
