The Projectors are an indie rock band from Victoria, BC, Canada, consisting of Dylan Rysstad (vocals), Layten Kramer (guitar), Robbie Sherif (guitar), Justin Dauphinee (drums), and Ryan Newman (bass) - all multi-instrumentalists and writers in their own projects.

 

Clearly influenced by The Strokes and other early "aught rock" bands like The Walkmen and The Hives, The Projectors embrace the comparisons while also not being afraid to expand on the sound.

The Projectors released their debut album, Tired of the Small Talk, in the spring of 2022. Though Dylan's other projects and past records have their purpose and place, his songwriting has never clicked as well as it does here.
