Dilly Dally is another one of those bands whose gigs have been on my list and for one reason or another, I've just never seen them live. They were one of the can't-miss bands on this year's Riverfest Elora line-up and they turned out to be the biggest highlight of the festival's first day.

Dilly Dally trade in heavy sounds and emotions. There's grunge and punk and alternative rock all mixed in with a unique edge and commitment. Influences are clear but sound fresh. The way the powerful chords give way to melodic verses and dynamically shift up to powerful chorsues with such emotional vocal delivery is so satisfying to the soul. It's aggression that gives peace; discord that displays grace. Their live show is intense and satisfying.

Dilly Dally's album Sore is available now and in my humble opinion, the album and their live show deserve your attention.

Give this must-see-live band's music some love:

"Desire"

"Purple Rage"

"The Touch"

"Snakehead"
