Oh can you please repeat the story?
I lost my place somewhere down the line
Please sing a sonnet or a poem of a blissful state of mind
and it might just be before our hearts divide

Canada’s Dillon Ryan & the Dream Romantic authentically breathes new life into new wave, goth, and post-punk. Taking inspiration from The Smiths, Echo & Bunnymen, and The Cure, their hauntingly melodic landscapes sweep over a cinematic, gothic universe…a realm that is both soothing and scary.

Based out of Moncton, New Brunswick, Dillon Ryan & The Dream Romantic weave poetic songwriting with enthralling melancholia and emotional generosity.

Their brilliant new single, The Story is a jangling, complex masterpiece of a breakup song, rife with passionate guitar work and a satisfying wall of sound belying the wrenching emotions behind the lyrics. There is a New Romantic twist to this song, with its bright, yelping vocals and chorus. The Story is infectious, danceable, and a jolly mask concealing hidden heartbreak and resignation.

The Story was produced by John Mullane (In-Flight Safety) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
