Conceived by Bruno & Eudora, The Dye crafts compelling sonic tapestries illumined by commanding vocals and fervent guitar riffs. Keen lyricism, avant-garde atmospherics and psychedelic overtones combine to form a powerful and intoxicating brand of alternative rock.
Who inspires you to write music?

How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Our music is a poetic exploration of song, sound, trance, lullaby, hymn, cinematic landscapes and painting of emotions. We believe in creating songs that convey emotion and storytelling with beautiful melodies accompanied by fervent guitars, driving drum beats, full bass sounds and other synth atmospheres. It would be really tricky to describe our music in terms of genre or to depict it in a fuller way as we ARE our music. We live inside of it!
What is your creative process like?
We typically write our songs with electric guitar and voices exploring melodies while writing lyrics that blend on the border of poem and narrative. Piano, synth, bass guitar and organ also take part at times on this first stage. In the second phase, we rehearse the songs with our drummer and bassist in order to find their parts and gel the song together. After that, we spend months in the recording studio carving all the layers to complete the final arrangements and sonic textures. In the end, we create a medium for the listener to travel with the power of imagination while being in the moment surrendered by the scenes we craft with our art.
Who would you like to collaborate with?
Our dream would be to collaborate with Jonny Greenwood, Radiohead’s lead guitarist, multi instrumentalist and arranger. His musicality is in many ways the most extraordinary and interesting in music today. It would be a dream for us to collaborate with him. He could add sonic elements and arrangements to our songs that would take our music to the next level!
If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?
The Cure. Their music has influenced ours on so many levels and we know we would be a terrific opening act for them. It’s a dream we will accomplish one day!
