Raw. Savage. Lacerating. Cathartic. Heavy. These are some of the first words to come to mind with this Toronto quartet. Built around fuzzy, jagged guitars, pulsing bass lines, and ominously pounding percussion, the maelstrom is anchored by frontwoman Katie Monks’s inimitable serrated howl. Quickly rising to the fore of the indie rock world with debut LP Sore, they cemented their place with this year’s Heaven followup, both of which garnered rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and NME. Ferocious and defiant, Dilly Dally’s tunes are distorted rallying cries for solidarity, serving as a flickering candle in a fractured jar surrounded by darkness.
