Listen to Mystery Pills‘ new single “Age of Isolation” exclusively on yvynyl here! This is off of his upcoming album Old Gold Devils.
Raj Dawson has spent the majority of his life in Rapid City, SD. In high school he starting hanging out in basements and playing loud music for fun, not profit because he was punk as fuck. For a few years he moved around the country and learned and forgot all kinds of important stuff like solid state physics and how to follow directions. He started recording as Mystery Pills in 2010 inside a bank vault in downtown Rapid City with a sampler, a guitar, and his lungs/mouth. Since the release of the 5-song Mystery Pills EP in 2012, he’s amassed a collection of wood-paneled keyboards and haunted drum machines in his recently remodeled basement studio where he’s working on wrapping up Mystery Pills’ debut album Old Gold Devils.
SOLAI’s single “Islands in the Sun” premiered on CMJ! Check it out here.
The single is off of his upcoming self-titled EP out September 30.
SOLAI was born under the sunshine and palm trees of Los Angeles. Five laid-back indie pop songs were carefully crafted by Chris Pope, in his backyard shed and Silver Lake studio. “Islands in the Sun” drips in a tropical summer heat giving optimism even to its stranded desert island castaway. Voluptuous and airy, the sounds of SOLAI keep you on an endless vacation.
