Dan Bejar’s mystique has been both created and peeled back through collaborations with the New Pornographers and Swan Lake, but best captured under his moniker Destroyer. Over 10 solo albums, he’s explored lo-fi electric folk and stripped down synthesizer symphonies with creative lyrics populated by both familiar and cryptic characters and unorthodox vocals. His music flouts convention in favour of sonic leaps of faith: sprawling layers of guitar countered by tender piano melodies, spinning just to the edge of chaos and back.
