DKANDLE RELEASES 'DISSOCIATION'
The single is part of the debut album MONDANO
Denis Kandle, born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil created DKANDLE (Florence, Italy) during the pandemic of 2020, and seeks references in genres like shoegaze, grunge and post-punk.
So far, three singles have been released: the debut FLAME - which features on ASPIRIN AGE VOLUME 2 (A SHOEGAZE COMPILATION) by BROKEN SOUND TAPES - the second single STAMPA CLANDESTINA and the latest single DISSOCIATION.
FLAME is an ode to the intrinsic human pursuit of pleasure, condemned by most religions with the "flame" of hell.... "It's a way of mocking the 'demonization' of pleasure" - says Denis. "We are not afraid of the flame, instead, we long for it to warm us. In the end, we will all go to the hell of the other's religion, so let's embrace the flame and enjoy it...". STAMPA CLANDESTINA is about escaping from dogmas. DISSOCIATION is about leaving toxic environments.
The tracks were recorded and produced in Kandle's home studio in 2021. They are part of the album MONDANO, released on September 23, 2022. MONDANO features 9 tracks and was mastered by KENNETH ESTRADA (BERLIN SHOEGAZER) using a Tascam cassette recorder, which renders the sound warmer and more organic. The concept of the album refers to worldliness (mondano = worldly). Dusk and full moon kind of invite us to leave home and do worldly things, that is, to have fun without religious guilt.
You can find DKANDLE on social networks as @dkandle (Instagram and Twitter) and at facebook.com/dkandle.

"The lessons from My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Ride and Flying Saucer Attack were very well assimilated by DKANDLE. The old flame of atmospheric rock has in his hands another chance to hook the curious public of these times". - Juan Bascur, ni))) naturaleza insaciable
