Dehra Dun
Mariposa Salad Days (Singelton)

By: Mike SOS

Dehra Dun is a San Diego sextet whose five-track EP shimmers with dramatic grace and resonates with majestic swagger. Tracks like "DSM-V" intertwines electronic gasps and keytar noodlings with elegant guitars, while the atmospheric "Apollo" trails into shoegazer territory, complete with the special effects nuances firmly in tow. Dehra Dun's attention to detail and strong sense of dynamics are the band's strongest attributes, and Mariposa Salad Days emphatically showcases these traits throughout, yet go the full distance on "Savings and Loans", the band's opener. Somewhere between The Snake the Cross the Crown, Far, and Codeseven, this group's EP is aimed for those looking for a musical emotional rollercoaster ride.
