A Hello To A Goodbye was finished during the first throes of the covid lockdown of 2020 in Canada: whatever its initial genesis (a beginning long since forgotten) the results reflect the emotional terminus of that recording process – a person alone, terrified and waiting for the end. Recorded mostly with period hardware, this isolated paranoid landscape is mined with what-ifs and never-mores, a profound distrust of fellow humans, and is a belated goodbye to a naive innocence that was graced to linger far longer than it should have.
Yves Malone is the project of Dylan Marcus McConnell (Adderall Canyonly, Oxykitten, The Department of Harmonic Integrity, The Snowfields). Born from a love of affordable Japanese synths and less-than-optimal drum machines, with a veneration of 80’s action and horror soundtracks, Yves Malone scores the depressive internal dialogues that drive good people to distraction at best, and crippling anxiety at worst, harnessing the malady to rob this poison of the horror it wreaks in service of generating creative endeavours, rather than a terminal ballast that brings us to our lowest.
