In our latest interview, the Maryland-based artist, Dhyan talks about his debut 10-track album, ‘The Sun Never Says’. So many emotions, it’s been quite a sonic journey so far. Press play on the album below and dive into our interview to learn more about it. He has revealed a music video is on the way, and more…
1 — Thanks for your time, how long did it take you to produce your new album ‘The Sun Never Says’?
‘The Sun Never Says’ took me about 4 months to fully create it. I put out “Lady In the Shadows” and “Speak of the Devil” as singles a while before tho haha.
2 — So, what was the initial concept for this record?
Initially, I wanted to make the entire album have a darker more mature vibe to follow my two singles. I eventually wanted the project to be more diverse to show I can capture different types of emotions.
3 — In your opinion, which track has the most memorable melody?
I would say “Back in Business” has the most memorable melody while “Lady in the Shadows” has the catchiest beat.
4 — Is the acoustic sound part of your signature style as an artist?
I LOVE THE acoustic sound and incorporating into Pop and Hip-Hop. I usually am not the biggest fan of putting myself in a box for genre but I would say I definitely say the acoustic melodies are part of my sound.
My favorite lyric would probably be “Lookin in the mirror and I see / the person staring in front of me / does he know who he is?” in “Speak of the Devil”.
6 — How many people participated in this project?
Me, the producer, and the two people I collaborated with! And, of course, the people in my life that sometimes spark inspiration. 🙂
7 — What’s one thing you could change about this finished album?
If I could change anything I wish I could have included the Lady in the Shadows Remix I’m currently working on. 😉
9 — What about upcoming music videos?
I definitely have a music video coming soon. I have an insane animated music video coming up for my song “Hypocrites”.
10 — Finally, why people should listen to ‘The Sun Never Says’?
People should listen to this album because it’s a lot about raw emotion and honesty. The project name is inspired by a poem by a Persian poet named Hafiz which discusses loving without expecting anything back. ‘The Sun Never Says’ you owe me. The project was meant to capture feelings like lust, infatuation, curiosity, confusion, harmless fun, impulsiveness, and ends with a message selfless love. I think a lot of people my age would relate to a lot of the songs because of the sheer frustration we all share in this aspect haha. Lastly, I have a diverse variety that could be Pop, RnB, Hip Hop, Latin Trap and more. Hopefully, there’s something for everyone.
