Designasaurs marks the first release for Yndian Mynah since their breakout album ‘Velvet Youth’ in 2019. What started off as a simple polyrhythm guitar riff, quickly evolved into a carefully thought out and technical six minute musical journey. Recorded and produced by the band themselves, the track was sent for mastering to Brad Boatright of Audioseige ( SUNN O ))), This Patch of Sky, Modern Life is War ).
The song was written after some serious inspiration of new music, and travelling overseas together as a band to Spain and Portugal, James the guitarist was obsessed with the new Tool Album and was researching them when he found out that the guitarist, Adam Jones, used to build the sets and makeup design for the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park.
“The rest of the band wasn’t so convinced about Tool, but have been massive fans of Jurassic Park, so it was kind of like finding a medium ground of something beautiful together, which is pretty much what we do when we write music, we designed something around what we love, given that we are not afraid to share where the influences come from. It’s free and kind of a brotherhood, where everything that inspires us is a respectful place. We thought of calling this our new offering because embracing these new journeys after a whole album together is how we want to redefine ourselves in the future. Pushing new boundaries, and taking from anything and everything that means something to us.” – Says Matthew Dickinson (Guitarist)
Steering away from conventional rock, Yndian Mynah is not bound by language or genre, and focuses on creating music that is left wide open for personal interpretation. Listeners can expect dynamic guitar-driven riffs and explosive drumming led by spontaneous structural changes, with a tendency for heavy breakdowns and momentary euphoria.
