Los Angeles-based trio DYAN’s ‘Looking for Knives‘ was featured on the latest episode of Into the Dark this week — Into the Dark, Season 2, Episode 4, “Midnight Kiss“.
The track was played over the ending credits.
‘Looking for Knives‘ has been one of my favorites since I first heard it featured on the supernatural drama series Lucifer, and headed off to YouTube to search it out.
Because the song’s official music video has a superb intro, with its use of the voice of woman with a strong southern twang talking about going to a restaurant called The Majestic for a meal, a gorgeous saxophone interlude mid-way through and the dreamy feel of DYAN’s lead singer’s vocals throughout.
In other words, it’s just a gorgeously unusual gem of a track.
DYAN’s ‘Looking for Knives‘ is also the title track of the indie trio’s superb debut studio album, which was released in 2016.
The song came with an equally stunning and quite hypnotic music video that was filmed in an abandoned building. A building you think is empty until several minutes into it, a woman mysteriously appears.
Within seconds the woman is running through the building before she stops and begins to rip wallpaper from its rooms, pull plaster away from where it was placed decades before, and beat at the walls with a brick.
The video ends with the woman disappearing through a doorway, and the voice of the southern woman returning to say “Yeah, it was a good one” and then laughing as the video fades out.
DYAN’S ‘Looking for Knives‘ even sans the video is such a powerful piece it has also been featured on other hit TV series, including Lucifer, South Side, Good Behavior and the popular YouTube series Impulse.

Into the Dark is currently available to stream on Hulu who are, annoyingly, still releasing each new episode of the horror web series a month apart.
