DYAN is the moniker for songstress Alexis Marsh. Her new song “St. James” is a ghostly pop number highlighting driving electronic drums and Marsh’s soulful voice. About the song, Marsh says, “I wanted a sparse sound to reflect the openness of the prairies where I grew up… The landscape seemed to draw horizon-long lines of expectation into the future, which I didn’t realize I resented until I couldn’t find satisfaction in success despite my ambition.” Anyone who has ever wanted to escape the sentiments of small-town life might find “St. James” eerily relatable.
DYAN’s full length, Looking For Knives, will be out July 29th. Until then, “St. James” will have to suffice. Have a look below.
