Dear Blanca
Dear Blanca
Combining anecdotal musings and concise arrangements, Dear Blanca retrofits post-punk grit with wide ranging rhythmic feel. Led by Dylan Dickerson’s introspective warble and multi-voiced guitar lines, drummer Marc Coty and bassist Cam Powell sync to bridge obtuse folk ambling with taut grooves. The trio’s resilient musical energy lends a sense of cautious optimism, acting as an emotional life preserver that guides the listener through somber undertones.

Dear Blanca’s first two full-length releases, 2013’s Talker and 2014’s Pobrecito, were engineered and produced by Charlotte, N.C. based musician Bo White. In May 2015, the band recorded a five-song EP, entitled I Don’t Mean to Dwell, with Durham, N.C. producer Scott Solter (Mountain Goats, St. Vincent, Spoon), released March 4, 2016 and streaming below.

Earlier this spring, the trio returned to the studio with Charleston’s Wolfgang Zimmerman to record their second album of 2016, To Tell A Half-Truth (to be released September 16th). A stunningly poignant collection of music unlike anything the band has yet produced, you can now stream the EP below.
NUMBTONGUE is a personal project of SC native Bobby Hatfield of The Sea Wolf Mutiny.

Self recorded over 3 years, debut album "Exhumation" is an experimental sonic pulp, defined by the lofi environs in which it was made. More questions than answers unfold amid studies in R&B/soul, psychrock, & 90's alternative w/all the urgency & joyful melancholy of previous work.
