Dahlia Sleeps carve a new path on ‘Still Light’

The track completes Side A of their debut album, ‘Overflow’.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Dahlia Sleeps. On last year’s ‘Black and Blue’ single, London quartet Dahlia Sleeps cast a murky, inward-looking shadow, with huge pop ambition nonetheless. On its follow-up ‘Still Light’, they shoot for the stars with no second thought. The track’s taken over a year to come, but it arrives with the confidence of a band biding their time and returning with precision. The band’s first two singles saw vocalist Lucy Hill’s vocals rise above brooding synths, while on ‘Still Light’, they’re carried on a wave of something altogether more grand and sky-reaching. Dahlia Sleeps are letting some light in, and they’re becoming an entirely different, more fascinating prospect as such.
