Death By Piano
A Brooklyn-based electronic project mixing the sounds of its native borough — electronic beats, distinctive analog instrumentation, and a thick brew of strings and synths sifted through a reconstructive filter, DBP is centered by KALEN’s lush and expansive voice. DBP “seems to be changing faces between darkwave and shoegaze” (All Things Go). Singer/songwriter/keyboardist KALEN leads DBP in collaboration with some of Brooklyn’s best producers and visual collaborators. DBP is a staple of the NY underground music scene but has also brought it’s dark and dreamy live show to stages such as Rough Trade NYC and elsewhere. DBP’s first EP, Countdown, and 2020’s trilogy of singles were released on H4H records.
Specializing in Graphic Design and Complex Photoshop Compositing/Retouching, Dan is a multi-disciplinary creative. He also does some Illustrating and has extensive experience with photography from both ends and in video capture and editing. He’s currently working with matte painting and concept art.
