Later this month, Dusky will release the second single on their new label, 17 Steps.
We’ve already soared into the sunset with A-side ‘Yoohoo’, and now we premiere the more grounded B-side, ‘Akebono’ (a word meaning ‘dawn’ or ‘daybreak’ in Japanese). Driven by tonk 707s and a growling bassline, it’s not a million miles from Pearson Sound’s Chicago tributes as Maurice Donovan, but with the hi-res finish we’ve come to expect from Dusky.
Dusky’s sets have been getting longer and longer this year, and next March 7 they’ll be taking over London’s Laundry for an entire night. For tickets and more info, head here. Dusky have also curated a night at this Winter’s edition of The Warehouse Project, with sets from Joy Orbison, KiNK, Ben UFO and more – you can read up on all the duo’s live goings-on here.
