KEXP Presents: Destroyer

By Janice Headley  |  KEXP-FM

Though a man of few words in person, singer-songwriter Dan Bejar finds his voice through music. That voice rang out loud and clear when his band Destroyer stopped by the KEXP studios.

With Destroyer’s 10th full-length album Poison Season, what began as a mostly solo project for Bejar — also known for his work in The New Pornographers — has expanded into a eight-piece touring act, complete with robust horns and harmonies. Shy and soft-spoken, smiling from behind dark sunglasses, Bejar led his band through an expansive, lush set of sophisticated, jazzy pop. Watch him perform “Times Square” here.
