Dilly Dally is a Toronto-based band who descended upon NYC during the CMJ Music Marathon seemingly on a mission to destroy everything in their way — appropriate for a group whose website features an old school post-apocalyptic fighting video game. The band’s core members, Katie Monks and Liz Ball, have a long history of making music together, inspired by the dynamics of the Pixies, heavy darkness of Nirvana, noise of Sonic Youth, and the arty thrash of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. A tight band with catchy, powerful songs (not to mention Monks’ memorable vocal style), Dilly Dally is a long time in the making and set to make an impact. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to tear through some songs and chat with Maia.
