The One21 Interviews Dignan

Pt.1

Pt.2

Dignan are a progressive indie rock band from McAllen TX. They play a darker breed of the type of music you come to expect of bands like Anathallo and mewithoutYou.  There the mood never distracts from their pure talent though. We got a chance to catch their SXSW show and were really impressed by their quiet but commanding stage show. You can read our report from that show, and then you can watch the videos above as we talked with the band about how they got started, their faith, and every now and again got to dodge the the cars trying to run us over. We hope you enjoy as much as we did.

here is the band playing “Tangeled Woods” live in 2008

    Part 2 of this interviews is fascinating. Dignan has some good insight into being a band in the digital age and into the Christian music industry.

    One thing that strikes me as a common theme from theses interviews and the Voices of The Underground series. The artists who are existing in both the Christian and mainstream music scenes are experiencing move acceptance talking Christ to the unsaved world than they are speaking of the world to Christians.

    What does that say of the Church’s role in society? On one hand we feel the hand of post modern political correctness trying to marginalize Christianity and shame us. On the other hand the world seems to be longing for what we experience. Could it be that we should focus less on what we know and act more on who we know?
