About Destroyer

Dan Bejar started Destroyer as a solo project in Vancouver in 1995.
His first album, We’ll Build Them a Golden Bridge, was an electric folk record, setting the stage for the early Bowie comparisons that were certain to follow his particular vocal style. In 1998, Bejar added a rhythm
section and took it into the studio for the first time. The resulting recording, City of Daughters, was
a sparsely produced collection of catchy pop songs in which Bejar’s increasingly obtuse lyrics really
started to stand out. Thief, again recorded in Vancouver, was released in 2000, but by then the
lineup had expanded into a quintet.

In late January 2020 Destroyer will release Have We Met, his new album on Merge Reacords and Dead
Oceans labels. Dan Bejar initially conceived of Have We Met as a Y2K album. He was already
active during the era but not heard overhead in a cafe or salon, which is perhaps what the idea of the
Y2K sound evokes nearly two decades later. Bejar assigned frequent producer and bandmate John
Collins the role of layering synth and rhythm sections over demos with the period-specific Björk,
Air, and Massive Attack in mind, but he soon realized the sonic template was too removed from
Destroyer’s own, and the idea of a concept was silly anyway.
