DALLE is a gothic electronic and rock band set in Tokyo. This project, started by atsushi hatta (ex.HATE HONEY, DEADLIES, DEEP), gained more attention in the last year, after ryo (ex.9GOATS BLACK OUT, HOLLOWGRAM, TAG & KEEL) joined the band as their new vocalist. This fact changed considerably a band who has become really ambitious and wants to reach an overseas market with catchy melodies and lyrics in English.

Their 5th and latest single "ICU", as its name states, it is not a release about happiness. It is about hopelessness, depression and fear. It starts with the song that entitles the single, 'ICU' --which story is as real as you and me. Worried about the mass of suicides in Japan, the band decided to write this song to give hope to anyone who has ever thought of committing it. In particular, it tells the story of a girl who tries to commit suicide but fails. She is sent to the ICU of a hospital. The lyrics of the song represent the grief of a mother completely destroyed and afraid of losing her beloved daughter forever. You can completely feel those emotions thanks to ryo's soft voice perfectly entwined with growls.
