dust-raiser @ Lass O'Gowrie Hotel
Newcastle, Australia post-punk quintet dust is fast cementing their status as one of the country’s most singular and essential bands. Urgent, mesmeric, and arresting both on and off the stage, the collective has wasted no time in ensuring that their music and message reaches as far as it possibly can.
The project of dual guitarist-vocalists Gabriel Stove and Justin Teale, bassist Liam Smith, guitarist, and saxophonist Adam Ridgway, and drummer Kye Cherry, offer an invigorating new take on Australian post-punk: progressive, catchy, and irresistible. Just as artistically motivated by the fragmented, free-genre steps of Yung Lean and Burial, merging experimental jazz and electronica into a sound as immediate and bashert as Inhaler and Violent Soho.
In the time since, the group have gathered at every chance available to sharpen their intricate sound, delivering a furiously intoxicating live show to fans across NSW’s east coast most recently at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl with previous appearances at BIGSOUND, This That, support slots with Bad//Dreems, Eliza & The Delusionals, RAAVE TAPES, Towns, Pist Idiots, Party Dozen, CLAMM, VOIID and soon a continental tour of the UK and Europe this April supporting Hockey Dad, while also being invited to play at FOCUS Festival in Wales and THE GREAT ESCAPE Festival in Brighton in May.
Ahead of the UK and EUROPE tour dust are putting together a pre listen launch / dust-raiser of their debut EP et cetera, etc out March 29 via Kanine Records.
