Dvne are a band of great contrasts, weaving titanic heaviness and intricate gentleness together, complex lyrical ideas with engaging storylines, and this has only been expanded upon and concentrated on second album Etemen Anka.
"It is a very dense and layered album which will reward multiple listens, and while this is becoming a recurring aspect of our music, we feel that we went further with it this time.
It's also a very polarising album, emotionally speaking.
The heavy sections are, well, very heavy, while the clean sections are much more intricate and delicate and in a way wouldn't be out of place in a Studio Ghibli anime soundtrack." , explains the band.
Their name is a reference to the timeless sci-fi epic Dune by Frank Herbert, this is very much a genre that they happily inhabit, and is once again reflected in the lyrical content of the record.
While wanting to create a universe of their own, they also cover more serious topics related to the society we live in, and while Asheran was very much focused on their relation to their surroundings and the environment, Etemen Anka focuses much more on social issues and more specifically on inequalities and the human relationship with power.
