about

On their new Dead and Gone EP, The Dyadics take two steps forward, one step back, and three jumps all over the map. They left off with an 11-song debut rock and roll masterpiece that infected listeners with heavy dance drums, rumbling riff-rock guitar, more melodies than Mozart, and booming bass. Rather than followup with another album, The Dyadics took a left turn and decided to have some fun and make this EP an extension of their intense live show.

The opening number and title track is Dead and Gone. It’s unlike anything you’ve heard before. The song is intensely imaginary and Kevin Kennedy’s masterful guitar work might just make the perfect soundtrack to a cage fight between gorillas equipped with swords and lasers and a David Bowie Ziggy Stardust lookalike. There’s also an accompanying performance video unlike anything we’ve seen before. Friend of the band Gary Kuiper was the mastermind behind it.

The second number, Get Down, is a playful response to their own track, Get Up. This is a track performed by the band’s rhythm section, Matt Weston. That’s right, Matt plays drums and a bass pad at the same time and even manages to sing and add theremin to this track. Sound confusing? It is. But this track is a unique twist on the classic Wipeout style drum solo.

The rest of the EP features the intense live reworking of Know Me Tonight, the only strictly acoustic song off their first album, as well as three cover songs that really show off their influences. Listening to The Dyadics’ music, it’s easy to hear why they would choose Jimi Hendrix’s Manic Depression, Stone Temple Pilots’ Crackerman, and Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir as three songs that have contributed to the development of their sound. Those familiar with the Dyadics know that the quality of their recorded work and the spectacle of their live performance already calls for comparisons to these rock icons.
