Canadian indie rock singer-songwriter Dan Bejar has been playing music for the last ten years with the band Destroyer. He is best known for his cryptic lyrical poetry that often intrigues as well as vexes. The band openly picks phrases used by other artists among various other sources including political rhetoric. The current lineup includes Joseph Shabason, Fisher Rose, Tim Loewen, Nicolas Bragg, Ted Bois, John Collins, Scott Morgan and Daniel Bejar. The band has released several studio albums including Kaputt, Trouble in Dreams, Destroyer’s Rubies, Your Blues, This Night, Streethark: A Seduction, Thief, City of Daughters, Ideas for Songs, and We’ll Build Them the Golden Bridge. They have released three EPs since 2005 including Notorious Lightning and Other Works, Archer on the Beach and Bay of Pigs. Their release of Streethawk: a Seduction in 2001 achieved something of a devoted cult following that established the rock act had already left an indelible impact on the genre. It comes as no surprise to see the Destroyer tickets being such a sought-after treat among in this genre.
Bejar, who is the main engine behind Destroyer, is a Vancouver-based independent singer-songwriter who formed the band in 1995, soon after which he produced his first album himself. We’ll Build Them a Golden Bridge was somewhat of a light offering which was recorded in Vancouver in Bejar’s home studio. The artist slowly began gathering momentum and he collaborated with John Collins on City of Daughters, following which the band was formally formed. By 2000, they disbanded so Bejar went for a long vacation to Spain. On his return, he recorded and released the next studio offering titled Thief, which received favorable reviews from many critics and brought the band immense recognition.
After the release of Thief, Bejar shifted focus to incorporating more elements of pop music, and contributed his material to another Vancouver-based indie rock act, The New Pornographers. By 2001, Bejar and his band released Streethawk: A Seduction that made their indie rock status more concrete with a strong cult following characteristic of their genre. They then had the Canadian indie rock band Frog Eyes, famous for its particularly idiosyncratic songs, perform back-up for many of their shows. The Frogs inspired their next series of tracks and soon they came up with Notorious Lightning and Other Works, which essentially comprised of six re-recorded songs from the earlier album Your Blues. The band continued to experiment with different sonic elements with their album and EP releases including Destroyer’s Rubies in 2006, Trouble in Dreams in 2008, the full-length offering Kaputt in 2011, and EP Bay of Pigs in 2009. Kaputt received a nomination for a Polaris Music Prize in the same year of its release, following which it was named among the short-listed nominees of the 2011 award.
In the last ten years that Bejar has recorded and performed with Destroyer, there have been many changes in the lineup along with shifts within the musicians he performs with. Due to this constantly changing shuffle in the lineup, the band is now being looked as more of a solo project headed by Bejar alone, while he insists that it is in fact a band with collaborators who contribute fully. Though the artist has owned up to not being good at keeping the band together and stable, he announced that the current lineup from the Destroyer’s Rubies’s recording sessions would be permanent and definitive from that point onwards. Many among the current members have already worked with Bejar in one way or the other, with some who have recorded with him while yet others have played live with him. Several among them share the same production team of Dave Carswell and John Collins. The influences cited by the band include Guided by Voices, Pavement and other shoegaze and indie bands. This is a truly exciting rock act that never steps back from experimenting with new instruments. It is obvious from their release Your Blues, which incorporates orchestral elements alongside a newly introduced reliance on the rather new age MIDI instruments. Their live performances have an exceptionally thrill-seaking vibe, so make sure to grab Destroyer tickets for a new sonic experience.
