about

SWAN is the 10th release overall from Boston's DYR FASER & the 5th ep release by the duo of Eric Boomhower & Amelia May. Hypnotic waves of vocal harmonies fly above a landscape of weaving guitars, lush synths, & Casio drum loops. DYR FASER's sound is techno mysticism. As one reviewer from the UK put it: "Dyr Faser's material is hard to pin down to any orthodox way of thinking. It has a free-flowing nature where shoegaze, dream-pop, darkwave and psychedelic dynamics all seem to interplay."

The ‘Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra’ of psychedelic, 21st century ballades…
- Turn Up The Volume!, Belgium

Sounds fantastic!
- Brian Carpenter, WZBC Free Association

Track Name: The Swan
I was saving my words for other lines
And every safe place I wilded every time
I hear it in the way you say
Nothing is in our way
If nothing can hold you down
Nothing can hold you down
I got it I got it I got it
But I can leave it with no delay
The sun'll hide behind my cloud but
I can be as sad as Monday
And I await the witching hour
I'm wide awake I'm wide awake
I was trading my world for other lives
In every strange place I wilded every time
And I hear it in the way you say
Nothing will ever change
If nothing can hold you down
Nothing can hold you down
I got it I got it I got it
But I can leave it with no delay
The sun'll hide behind my cloud but
I can be as sad as Monday
I await the witching hour
I'm wide awake I'm wide awake I'm wide awake
Track Name: I Was Never There
Hide me memory, I was never there
Love me like you do, so sincerely
I believe I won’t quit

Leave it on tv, I’ve had enough
Holding in/hold out, what’s it about
I believe I won’t win

I’m in shadowlands, I can see it through
Leave me like the land, you need it too
I believe I won’t give, I believe I won’t give in
Track Name: They Made You Up
The waves once understated
The seasons calm but faded
Watching all the eyes I see
In simple acts of complication
They want you to be one
And fit into a box of namesakes
There's more inside my open hand
To keep alive the conversation
They made you up
They made you up
Track Name: Cold Design
Your mind begins to take a turn
That you may call on me
Of all the crazy ideas I had this could be the first
Second I believe
What comes alive in time escapes you
But I give you mine
And I want to
Take you in and go away
Keep you as I rue the day
Watch you rise and fall aside
Pick you up out from under
What comes alive in time escapes you
But I give you mine
Your mind begins to take a turn
That you may call on me
Of all the crazy ideas I had this could be the worst
Message I receive
To take you in and go away
Keep you as I rue the day
Watch you rise and fall aside
Pick you up out from under
A cold design
A cold design
