Dilly Dally - Heaven

A vision of a life still to live.

Dilly Dally - Heaven
Published: 2:25 pm, September 11, 2018Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

In-between the release of debut album 'Sore' and its box-fresh follow-up, ‘Heaven’, Dilly Dally nearly called it quits. 

Fittingly described by the band as the album they’d make if they “died and went to heaven”, opener ‘I Feel Fine’ definitely floats on a fluffy cloud. 

With understated grit and an iron fist, there’s a woozy, dreamlike edge that reflects frontwoman Katie Monks’ raw growl in all kinds of interesting directions. 

A vision of a life still to live, it’ll hopefully be a long time until Dilly Dally ascend yet.
