The Dan Ryan is the new psych/folk project from Nathan Dixey who previously played in Hospital Ships and Your Friend. Dixey, who is based in Austin by way of Kansas, reveals the inspiration behind his band's name is Chicago's Dan Ryan expressway and nearby forest:

"A clogged artery, the expressway slowly churns its commuters from the city's heart to the ghettos, outskirts, and suburbs out beyond Northwest Indiana. Trains shuffle through its enormous median to 95thStreet. Great iron edifices deliver passengers east and westbound, roaring seventy feet above the freeway's concrete floor.

Tucked in the city's southwest corner lays a patch of forest bearing the same name. Carved by glaciers, The Dan Ryan Woods boast Chicago's highest vantage point. Climb its light towers to admire her big, broad, shimmering shoulders. Linger under its giant maples to escape the whirr of the city streets. The Dan Ryan represents the imminent collision between tranquility and transition; an acknowledgement that regardless of ones stature, seat, or disposition, you're still along for the ride."

The Dan Ryan released the first single from the debut self-titled album this week. "Fleeting" is a beautiful and enthralling Beatles-esque psych/folk song and the accompanying cover art is beyond gorgeous. Stream "Fleeting" below and catch up with the Dan Ryan on Facebook. The full album drops May 27th via Cosmic Dream Music.



Fans can also grab a free download of the Dan Ryan's 2012 EP on Bandcamp.
