Dilly Dally Share ‘Purple Rage’ From Debut Album ‘Sore’

Sore  LP Out Oct 9 Via Partisan Records (US) And Buzz Records (CAN).

Canadian alt rockers Dilly Dally have dusted off the second single from their upcoming debut album Sore. The track is called ‘Purple Rage’ and attempts, and succeeds, in balancing the Black Francis-esque abrasiveness of singer Katie Monks vocals with a deft knack for melody. Albeit melody via loud guitars and thunderous drums. But, who doesn’t like a bit of that?

Monks said about the single, “Anger is such a powerful emotion. This song is meant to be an anthem for channeling all the rage we have into something positive. When I have been badly hurt in the past, I am usually filled with a huge amount of energy. I always try to use that energy to make myself ‘stronger’ and ‘tougher.’ For me, that has meant working harder on the band plus my art shit, quitting cigarettes cold turkey after being a pack a day smoker, dying my hair weird colors, investing more energy into my friends…all kinds of stuff. It’s kinda like you become a superhero version of yourself…and no one can fuck with you.”
