Pulling from elements of hip-hop, neo-soul, indie-rock, and jazz, DACEY are setting off a new-age storm. The Vancouver based 4-piece have been making noise in their hometown since 2019, and now they've offered up an immediate discography standout with their latest woozy piece of alt-r&b, “BITTER”.
Here, DACEY replace yearning with animosity, ultimately deciding that being alone is better than being in bad company. Retro synths and melodic riffs are the vehicle for the group's undeniable songwriting talent, while ethereal vocals are perfectly juxtaposed with gritty textures, leaving space for each lyric to shine.
The track's apex follows a stripped-down interlude, culminating in a climactic breakdown of garage-rock drums and distorted guitars to close out the psychedelic R&B masterpiece. Don't miss it.
