Dillon is proud to announce that, ahead of the release of her new single, ‘A Matter Of Time’, on 3rd March via BPitch Control, she will be making her new track ‘You Cover Me’ available as a free download.
The stunning new song is representative of Dillon’s extraordinary sound, one which has undergone somewhat of a development from her debut album, ‘This Silence Kills’, which was lauded by fans and critics alike. With its ominous drum patterns and sparse piano arrangements, ‘You Cover Me’ truly demonstrates Dillon’s unique style, one which is sure to win her great acclaim ahead of the release of her new album, ‘The Unknown’, on 31st March.
The first single to be taken from the album, ‘A Matter Of Time’, will be released on 3rd March and is itself a haunting, balladic affair – one which reveals itself gradually. Opening with an almost unsettling piano melody, the track builds with a pulse-quickening drum sequence layered with Dillon’s trademark quivering vocals before slowly coming to a rapturous crescendo, complete with eerie synth and vocal loops.
The Berlin-based artist, who originally hails from Brazil, captivated critics and audiences alike with the release of her first album, ‘This Silence Kills’. Described as chanson-pop, with a voice comparable to the dulcet tones of Feist, the young Dominique Dillon de Byington left an impression on more than just the indie scene. Armed with an album both sweet and enticing in its pop-style sensibility, yet experimental enough to be taken seriously, Dillon embarked upon the unexplored territory of worldwide festival gigs and two sold-out tours.
‘The Unknown’ marks Dillon’s second release with German label, BPitch Control. Founded by electronic producer Ellen Allien in 1999, BPitch Control has become famed for launching the careers of iconic techno acts such as Modeselektor, Paul Kalkbrenner, Apparat and Moderat, so the quirky, alt-pop stylings of Dillon make for an intriguingly different release from the esteemed label.
Enigmatic and narrative-driven, ‘The Unknown’ is Dillon’s invitation to us to enter the magical world of drama, lament and personal scars that she creates in her poignant poetry. These first offerings from the album give the first taste of Dillon’s newly developed and extraordinary sound, which renders ‘The Unknown’ as one of the most exciting new musical prospects of 2014.
