Having recently graced us with the sultry vocal melodies and crafty programming of their double A-side single release Underworld / Zeros, which, co-produced with Jim Abbiss, felt as complex and intriguing as any full length-album, the group with a penchant for eclectic compositions is back with a full-on full length record.
Duologue, the Indie-Electronic band from across the pond that we just can’t get enough of, are bringing their notable Indie-Electronic crossover sound that blends digital effects and effervescent acoustic tones to their new, highly anticipated release Song & Dance. The album, released on Killing Moon Records, made its digital debut yesterday, with a physical release hitting April 23rd in the U.K.
But more than simply producing intricate material in the studio, Duologue have the ability to masterly channel their genre-blending music onto the live stage — our very own stairwell included. The band performed “Machine Stop” and “Zeros” at The Orchard’s first-ever CMJ Stairwell Series last October, and needless to say, the Indie men from London did not need to be plugged-in to capture a memorable sound, rocking our beloved stairwell with just a violin, glockenspiel, some acoustic guitars, and haunting harmonies.
Just recently, the group sold out their album launch party at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, and you can expect similarly packed shows on their upcoming tour with Post War Years. After the European stint, the band will be coming stateside to perform at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
