Virginia Beach (US) Alternative Metal act, Magg Dylan, have dropped a brand new single & music video ‘Pawns’ on April 13th 2021.
Lead Vocalist, Suzanne De Lulio & Bassist Les Moseley spoke about the new release:
“This song has a very deep meaning for us, and it is a lot heavier than most of the songs from our full-length Amethyst. We shot this video exactly 365 days after we shot Delusional with the same director – Digital Thunderdome and they are masters of their craft. The School Bus Graveyard was a perfect location for this video because it signifies abandonment, and I think this really conveys the overwhelming emotions in the song. This was our first experience with a drone camera and that was epic, making for some big shots.”- Suzanne De Lulio
Bassist Les Moseley adds, “it was a bone-chilling day and night… freezing! If we were doing anything outside of something for this band it certainly would have been in our top 5 most miserable days because I could feel every degree of that day through every little rip in my jeans and I can only imagine how Suzie felt. Thankfully, Scott, Desiree and the rest of the crew kept us on point and handled everything so professionally. I don’t think we could’ve managed without them!” – Les Moseley
“Pawns” is Magg Dylans latest release since their incredible rendition of Grammy-winning 90’s hit originally performed by Alanis Morissette “You Oughta Know”.
The band have only released 1 LP and 2 singles since their debut last year but they’re really kicking up a storm, with their latest single achieving over 24,000 views on YouTube alone and with over 5,000 followers on Facebook, these guys & gals aren’t here to mess around. They’re here to kick ass & to create something different to stand out from the rest.
Overall, ‘Pawns’ is a kick-ass track (as we said before, they’re here to kick ass) and showcases all of the bands skills & talents all in one song. Magg Dylan themselves, to me, is quite different from other bands that we have come across. Upon listening to them for the first time, it’s easy to assume they’re like any other metal act out there, but they’re far from it. I can definitely see why they covered Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” because Magg Dylan is like if Morrissette herself dived into the Metal scene, but despite the similarities, they’ve still added their own unique sound which is what sets them apart. In fact, it’s a bit like of Alanis Morrisette, Hands Off Gretel and In This Moment merged together. With Alanis on vocals, Hands Off Gretel’s punk rock attitude + gritty vocals and In This Moment on lyrics & backing track.
“Magg Dylan are here to stay and kick-ass, they could very well be a band to watch in 2021” – Rock Lifestyle UK
