DKANDLE is an innovative force in the music industry. Their sonic creations fuse elements of shoegaze, dreampop, grunge, and post-punk, delivering a distinctive and immersive sound. With the recent release of their second album, 'More Drag Queens Less Drama Queens,' DKANDLE continues to push boundaries and captivate audiences around the globe.


Denis Kandle, born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, embarked on his musical journey in 2020 from the serene confines of his home studio, nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Tuscany, Italy. Fueled by an unwavering passion for emotive melodies and a gift for crafting thought-provoking lyrics, Kandle birthed the entrancing musical project known today as DKANDLE.

In a remarkably short period, DKANDLE has captured the spotlight with their distinctive fusion of shoegaze-infused soundscapes. Their debut single, 'Flame,' earned a coveted spot on the prestigious compilation 'Aspirin Age: Volume Two (A Shoegaze Compilation),' curated by Nicole Davis and Broken Sound Tapes. The ethereal melodies and poignant storytelling within tracks like 'Stampa Clandestina' and 'Dissociation' further solidified DKANDLE's position as sonic trailblazers.

DKANDLE's artistic vision reached its pinnacle with the release of their debut album, 'Mondano,' on September 23, 2022. This album stands as a testament to DKANDLE's unwavering commitment to weaving a sonic tapestry that strikes a profound chord with its audience.

Today, DKANDLE extends a heartfelt invitation to listeners to embark on a transcendent odyssey through the intricate nuances of post-shoegaze with their second album 'More Drag Queens Less Drama Queens', released in October 2023. Their evocative melodies and soul-stirring lyricism merge harmoniously, crafting an immersive experience inspired by personal introspection and the timeless beauty of the Tuscan backdrop.


Post-Shoegaze | Dirtgaze | Grungegaze | Modern Alternative Rock | Noise Rock | Post-Punk | Ethereal Wave | Dream Pop | Dreamgaze | Nu Gaze

WL//WH (Italy): “DKANDLE weaves swirling multi-colored vibrant unearthly soundscapes, blending fuzzy and reverberating Shoegaze textures, mesmerizing Dream Pop meditations, sludgy Grungey tones and moody Post-punk strains, heightened with soul-stirring lyricism and pensive emotive vocalizations”.

HEATWAVE! (Brazil): “In October, the band released a new album, with the great name 'More Drag Queens Less Drama Queens'. I have the impression that many people today try to record albums like this, calling themselves shoegaze or dreampop, but few have the artistry and intensity that DKANDLE demonstrates in their work. Their genuine involvement with the genre is clear, and this guarantees a more genuine and sincere artistic expression”.

Radio Cult FM (Brazil): "The band makes an interesting rustic sound in De La Shower, but with modern touches. The guitarist stands out for his unique way of playing and the production of the work is very good”.

RGM (UK): “'Hanging Out in Stars' certainly shows the promise of DKANDLE in creating a thick and interesting sound”.

Naturaleza Insaciable (Chile): “'Hanging Out In Stars' is a 5-minute track that insists on atmospheric guitar noise, with a soulful beauty”. 

Rue X Magazine (Mexico): “DKANDLE is a very good combination of shoegaze and grunge, ideal for fans of 90's and early 00's alternative rock”.

Radio Cult FM (Brazil): “The band has a dirty sound, in a good way, which is lacking in many rock bands today. 'Hanging Out in Stars' is heavy, but also brings interesting psychedelic passages and stands out for that. 

HEATWAVE! Blog (Brazil): “Dissociation unites noisy guitars and ethereal vocals with heavy, bassy sounds, and a great result came out”.

La Caverna (Mexico): “Enjoy 'Hanging Out in Stars' with its incredible guitars and dreamy rhythms”. 

Last Day Deaf (Greece): “DKANDLE paints a poetic landscape of feelings, inviting all to traverse the cosmic expanse of their musical universe”.

HEATWAVE! Blog (Brazil): "'Hanging Out in Stars' features the classic sound of sublime noise. High, distorted guitars, strong drums, and a whole intense scene created. All of this laying down the groundwork for delicate, ethereal, and very beautiful vocals".
