by the partae


“[A] blend of doomy balladry and perfumed pop… [Ardyn find] little jewels of warming melody in simple pop-rock elements.” – NME

“Vaguely mystic – the kind of melodies that seem to move to the beat of natural currents, a twisting wind or waves lapping the shore.” – Stereogum

“Spectral, folk-dipped pop.” – Noisey

“Tight-knit and easy-flowing…  A gloomy take on pop that swerves from moody piano lines to sweeping instrumentation.” – DIY

“The pair seem to surge ahead with each passing release, strengthening their songwriting while exploring fresh aural avenues.” – Clash

“Glistening pop magic.” – The Line of Best Fit

Ardyn round out 2017 with the release of new single “Bloom” and an EP of the same name collating previous singles “Life Happens,” “Throwing Stones” and “Together.”

Ardyn’s output conjures otherworldly feelings of escapism, their very name a homage to the sibling’s aunt whose house and garden they spent much of their childhood in, one that reads like an Alice in Wonderland world of hidden rooms, treehouse’s and exotic pets. Bloom takes its influence from much of that childhood magic, the never-ending search of an almost transcendental paradise where they can retreat. On previous single “Throwing Stones,” Katy talked of the alienated feelings towards global politics and societal volatility – “Bloom” is the band yearning of a utopian sanctuary not unlike that of their childhood in the face of what we’re seeing in the world today.
