BIO

Denis Kandle 02_edited_edited_edited.jpg

Denis Kandle, a musician hailing from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, embarked on his musical journey in 1994 as the vocalist of the band Pregnant Felix, alongside guitarist Marcelo Vasco (currently in Troops Of Doom), bassist Fabio Pires (currently in Helga), and drummer Duda. Over the years, Denis's passion for music led him to various ventures, including producing Projeto Bandas, a notable weekly event that showcased bands from Rio and other states, and opening for the renowned New Yorker band Shelter with his band N.O.P.E in 1998 in Rio.

 

In 2001, Denis had the honor of deejaying at the Eletro Tent of Rock In Rio III Festival, sharing the stage with iconic acts such as Ferry Corsten. He further solidified his presence in the music scene by becoming the resident DJ of Electrolounge at Bunker 94 in Rio from 2005 to 2006.

Driven by his passion for electronic music, Denis embarked on a new musical direction, forming two personal projects, Colortronic and Aliencore. However, it was in 2020 that, now living in Tuscany, Italy, he truly came into his own under the moniker DKANDLE, crafting a captivating fusion of shoegaze, grunge and post-punk.

 

DKANDLE's musical experimentation has been met with resounding enjoyment. With five singles already released, including the debut 'Flame', which earned a spot on 'Aspirin Age: Volume Two (A Shoegaze Compilation)' by Broken Sound Tapes, DKANDLE's debut album, Mondano, arrived in September 2022, enchanting listeners with its evocative soundscapes.

 

Continuing his creative journey, DKANDLE is poised to captivate audiences once again with the release of the highly anticipated second album, More Drag Queens Less Drama Queens, which was unleashed on October 6, 2023. For the album's promotion, DKANDLE dropped the singles 'Hanging Out In Stars' - which had a world premiere on DKFM Radio - and De La Shower, offering a tantalizing glimpse into their sonic exploration and artistic evolution.

"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.

Wilson Farina, HEATWAVE! (Brazil)

"I have the impression that many people today try to record albums  calling themselves shoegaze or dreampop. But few have the artistry and intensity that DKANDLE demonstrates in their work. It is clear their genuine involvement with the style, and this guarantees a more genuine and sincere artistic expression.

André Costa, Rádio Cult FM (Brazil)

“The band has a dirty sound, in a good way, which is lacking in many rock bands today. Their sound is heavy, but also brings interesting psychedelic passages and stands out for that.
