It seemed only appropriate that for SXSW week we feature an Austin native. DLG.’s new EP, ‘MARCH’ reaches new heights while staying true to his signature laid back, soulful DIY sound. The first installment of his new “2 on 2” series where he will regularly drop 2 songs on the 2nd of the month, this release gets inspiration from artists like MGMT & Dayglow and is noticeably more uptempo than his past releases. “CLOSE ONE!”, which landed a Spotify editorial playlist spot on The New Alt, has more of a laid back summer feel, while “DROWN IN YOU” is more driving with wispy falsetto vocals a la Tame Impala.
In just over a year of working with Bodega Sync, DLG. has quickly become a favorite among music supervisors with sync placements in 4400, Bel-Air, Sex Lives of College Girls, and You. A true DIY artist, he writes, produces, performs, and self releases all of his music. He even designs the cover art, each of which are literal works of art. At just 26 he’s developed his own evolving signature sound that has earned him half a million Spotify monthly listeners, several profile playlist spots, a viral TikTok single and the admiration of a wide range of artists who he regularly collaborates with.
