Psychic Dancehall is not a rock band. They are not two people who set out to make music for people to hear. Psychic Dancehall is a look into the lives of two people making sense of the world they inhabit-sharing the dark and seedy world they live in with a sonic honesty and emotion that can only be expressed through whispered lyrics; slow, smooth drum beats; pulsing keyboards and the back and forth of a man and a woman in love.
With every relationship comes the creation of a brand new world. Be it the physical space you inhabit, the little jokes only the two of you understand, or your favorite places to go because they are completely yours, relationships rely and are built on the creation of space. When Dorian Wartime and Sylvia Innocent met in 2006, they “immediately fell insanely in love,” says Wartime. Years later the two took an apartment in a run-down section of San Diego and set about creating their world together. Little did they know that fate and the weather would conspire to make their world not only unbelievably romantic, but also worth sharing.
