Dilly Dally: A Postcard From New York

An audiovisual love letter to the city, featuring the four-piece punk band.

June 02, 2016

For a new video, The FADER spent a day with Dilly Dally in New York City, about 500 miles from their Toronto home turf. The result is a visceral postcard from a rock band on the road, hinged on a barrage of timeless sights and sounds: old-fashioned diners, a ringing phone, the sluggish screech of a subway car rolling overhead. It's narrated by Katie Monks, the band's gravel-voiced leader, who sounds pretty calm when she's not sing-screaming her heart out. "Before I came to New York I thought it was going to be a bunch of guys in business suits," she says. She was pleasantly surprised to find out there were weirdos like her there, too.
