On Friday, September 8, Dialectic will release an all-new EP, Too Dark to See the Sky. The six-song record is the band’s first release since 2019’s Hunting for Stars.

On Too Dark to See the Sky, songwriter Ying-sun Ho and company explore life in the age of COVID-19, the creation and destruction of family, and the aging and death of loved ones. And, of course, the band touches on themes of love lost and emergent.

‘We drew on a lot of different experiences and music and musings to make something that, to us, feels new and exciting and timeless all at once,’ says Ho. ‘I really think people are going to connect with these songs.’

Dialectic recorded and mixed the EP at Tiny Telephone Recording with producer Beau Sorenson. This is their first time working with Sorenson, but certainly not the last.

Too Dark to See the Sky will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, and other services for streaming and purchase.
