Derayernah (pronounced de-ra-ya-na) are a two-piece art rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. The act was formed in 2017, and consists of Drue Marsland (guitars, vocals, production, drums) & Jhau Watema (vocals, percussion, lyrics, composition). The duo's music is a melange of textured organic sounds and conceptual lyrics.
The band classify their music as art rock primarily. They incorporate elements of progressive rock in their sound inclusive of instrumental passages, and components of math rock like tempo fluctuations and occasional time signature shifts. Borrowing significantly from Gregorian music, the duo additionally infuse monkesque chants on their tracks. Their music is sequenced into themes—both instrumentally and in terms of wordplay—driven by recurring characters with established traits. The duo released their debut album in September, 2019.
