  • SASK ARTISTS DAYDA BANKS, NOLTO & TRILL MONROE ANNOUNCE EP RELEASE, FIRST SINGLE/VIDEO

    SASK ARTISTS DAYDA BANKS, NOLTO & TRILL MONROE ANNOUNCE EP RELEASE, FIRST SINGLE/VIDEO "YELLOW BRICKS"

    November 21, 2019

    Fresh off the July release of "We Should go to Japan", Dayda Banks and Trill Monroe are back and have teamed up with fellow Saskatchewan artist Nolto to bring you a new 5 track EP titled "SADS"(Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome). SADS is Nolto's first release since his 2014 concept album, "Scott Free... Red Handed", on Side Road Records

    The first single, 'Yellow Bricks', will be released on 12/02/2019 as both audio on all major platforms as well as a visual release through both Dayda Banks and The Last Astronauts.  It was filmed on location in Saskatoon with ACHEETV. Yellow Bricks is the only single on SADS featuring a guest producer (KHRONOS). 

    SADS is an experimental alt-rap project. Laced with Trill's diverse production and both Nolto and Dayda's lyrically driven songwriting, the 5 tracks are worlds apart but maintain a cohesive exploration of death, melancholy, and finite sadness, playing through seamlessly within it's 18 minute run-time.

    SADS will be available digitally on all platforms, as well as on a very limited tape cassette, 01/03/2020.

    This project was created, recorded, and mastered at The Last Astronauts studio in Saskatoon, SK.

  • New Single from Dayda Banks - Turn Off All the Lights

    New Single from Dayda Banks - Turn Off All the Lights

    October 22, 2019

    Saskatchewan's Dayda Banks is back with a brand new song release.   On October 23rd, 2019 he will be releasing his brand new single " Turn Off All the Lights".  

     This is a follow up collaboration between Dayda and Sask producer Trill Monroe after their July EP release of "We Should go to Japan".  Trill created a simplistic acoustic style melody over boom-bap drums that Dayda rolls through from start to finish with his deep thoughtful lyricism.  The verses are written with a raw emotion you can really resonate with while still finding the song very easy to listen to.  The chorus is simple, catchy and effective.  Turn Off All the lights is dedicated to "The blond haired green eyed girl from North Carolina".  While she may be unknown,  its not hard to tell how much Dayda cares for her.    This song was produced at Saskatoon's Paved Arts Studio with audio engineer Dillybat Productions.
