Dauwd: Could It Be / Shimmer FREE DOWNLOAD

Liverpool based artist Dauwd releases his debut EP for free this Month from the Bandcamp page of the ever brilliant Pictures Music. The fact that Dauwd met Pictures Music man Alex Clapworthy at our Mount Kimbie gig last October makes this release even more exciting for us! So, to the tracks...

‘Could It Be’ is the brother in arms of Joy Orbison’s calling card ‘Hyph Mngo’, with acid undertones guiding the tracks progression through an ambient and beautiful introduction, to the house breakdown and unexpected but brilliant bass wobbles in the finale. The influence of Mount Kimbie’s debut LP ‘Crooks and Lovers’ can be heard across the flipside ‘Shimmer’. Playfully light guitars are present throughout, as are some superb vocals. This release is absolutely perfect for the Summer vibes, and from listening to Dauwd’s other productions, this guy is set for a great future.

Click here to download both tracks for free from Dauwd's Bandcamp page.
