Pale Dian: Misanthrope

Drawing from the iciest parts of synthpop and post punk, and going as far as reaching the reverb-drenched enormity of shoegaze, Texan project Pale Dīan deliver their own kind of artistry which they accurately call nightmare pop, carrying meditative qualities and aiming for an intense emotional personal observation and the surreal subconscious.

Pale Dīan's new album, Feral Birth, is out on Green Witch Recordings, following their 2016 full length Narrow Birth, which was released on Manifesto Records. The release of the album coincides with the release of a psychedelic animated video for the song Misanthrope by another Austin native, Wiley Wiggins.

Wiggins also works in game development, and was featured as Mitch Kramer in the classic coming-of-age movie Dazed & Confused. The artist sees animation as one more creative channel, and describes the video concept as “a person who has been up all night on powerful hallucinogens realizes that they have to drive to work, and the unendurable thought of highway traffic in the August sun causes a crude skull-like top to launch from inside of their face and destroy America in an attempt to stop time.

Pale Dīan are currently on a short tour in their home, Texas, to celebrate the release of Feral Birth
