4-piece indie girl band Dulcie have just dropped their brand new banger, Dust, and if you're not dancing around in your shawl like Stevie Nicks then you need to reassess how your Friday is going.
Picture this: it's a warm summer afternoon, you're running amuck with your friends around the streets of your hometown and before you know it, you're living your best carefree life skating around a roller rink. THAT is what Dulcie deliver on this track, both figuratively and literally.
The happy, carefree track is made up of mesmerising harmonies, smooth melodic layers, beautiful arrangements and driving rhythms. Thematically, the song centres around diving into something headfirst, ignoring the red flags and soon after realising everything is not what it seems. The sonic soundscape and warm, silky melodies will honestly brighten up your day, and feels like it belongs in Stevie Nicks' discography, but also feels fresh and revitalised.
The music video sees the WA girls doing what you're imagining whilst listening: running amuck with your friends around the streets of your hometown and living your best carefree life skating around a roller rink. Directed by Liam Fawell, the visual was shot in and around Perth, WA.
Duclie are Ashleigh Carr-White, Timieka Denton, Saskia Brittain and Madison Hanley, and are in our opinion, set to become one of Australia's best bands. Not even girl bands, just bands because that is how much they deliver on their releases. Forming in April 2018, the band have toured extensively, sharing the stage with other Aussie legends including G Flip, San Cisco, Spacey Jane, Polish Club and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. They've also played festivals such as BIGSOUND and Groovin The Moo
their soulful debut single Fall put them on the radar, catching the attention of local band Ocean Alley, who named it their favourite track of 2019. Having performed a handful of couch concerts gigs, and an appearance on Idol-aid during the COVID-19 pandemic, the group are working hard rehearsing for some special performances later this month, and will also be hitting the road with Ocean Alley early next year.
