Dilly Dally released its sophomore album, "Heaven," last September. The Toronto band takes on subjects like trauma, depression, sexism and angst behind punk and grunge-inspired guitars. The record came together after a difficult tour cycle that nearly ended the group. 

More from OpenAir Sessions: 

Dilly Dally visited the CPR Performance Studio before a show at Denver's Larimer Lounge. The band members played four songs from "Heaven" and spoke with Bruce Trujillo about taking a break to focus on mental health, the band's newfound optimism and working with a new producer to tweak their sound.  

Stream the session above.

Songs performed:

  • "Heaven"
