The Dye – Clementine

The Dye introducing a new single: Clementine

May 2022 – It is not always easy to create music that feels incredibly ethereal, yet raw and energetic at the same time. However, The Dye managed to achieve this otherworldly sonic balance to absolute perfection, making for a truly insightful and one-of-a-kind approach to creativity. Their recent song, “Clementine” has clear roots in Post-Punk and New Wave, with oceans of fuzzy bass and lush guitar tones alternating the poetic and personal lyrics.

However, there is an anthemic quality to this song, which might remind you of iconic performers such as David Bowie (Think “Heroes” era) as well as modern indie stalwarts such as Arcade Fire, Dead Rituals or The Ninth Wave, only to mention but a few. The Dye’s music is incredibly immersive and compelling, showcasing that great songwriting can be truly timeless. If you take this song and remove all the production value (the effects, the lush soundscapes and so on) you are still left with a great song that transcends genre definitions.

Fans of bands such as The Cure, Joy Division, Air, Slowdive or Depeche Mode should most definitely check out The Dye’s music, including the stunning single “Clementine.”
