Destroyer, another representative of the Canadian alternative scene, is an unpredictable band. The 25-year-old project lead by Dan Bejar (also known from The New Pornographers for years) has already surprised several times with musical experiments. Destroyer has moved from sounding like a demo recorded in the basement on out-of-tune guitars ("We'll Build Them a Golden Bridge" ), to musical development on "City of Daughters" (1998), "Thief" (2000) and " Streethawk: A Seduction "(2001), a perverse stylistic change to" This Night "(2002), playing with MIDI sounds on" Your Blues "(2004) and a series of stable, very good releases of recent years, up to the latest, twelfth album" Have We Met "(2020). "On his new master album, Dan Bejar moves like a ghost through his familiar mysterious world," wrote Pitchfork magazine, calling the band Best New Music. Mojo praised "Have We Met", writing about "a very innovative version of British art-pop of the 1980s". Destroyer will perform at Alter Stage on July 1.
