Written, performed, produced and mixed by Duologue, so goes the credit on A-B the impressive futuristic electro rock infused second E.P from London based five-piece Duologue. Hot on the follow up to eponymous first E.P this new release is yet further proof of this experimental bands ability to fuse audio technology with good old, fashioned heart felt songs. Melodies melt into glitchy beats and bass heavy riffs buoy up guitar solos, seamlessly soaring into crescendos of dance friendly rhythms all pulled together by singer Tim Digby-Bells emotion ridden vocals.
In between retreating to the wilds of South England to write and produce the band have found time to self curate a number of sell out show’s with the likes of Matthew Dear, Darkstar, Breton and Worship as well as joining Metronomy for his Shepherds Bush Empire show earlier this year. In addition the band remixed a counterpart E.P to their debut release and collaborated with up and coming director and VJ, Lewis Kyle White ( 2 Many DJ’s, Radio Soulwax, Crystal Fighters) to produce four remix videos currently being hosted online at duologuemusic.co.uk.
“I guess we would consider ourselves musicians and producers in the way we approach a track, we write the song, break it apart and build it up layer by layer, using as many new sounds and beats as possible and pushing it as far as it can go.”
Deceptively named, Duologue’s first incarnation was born from the meeting of musicobsessive’s techno DJ and beats programmer Toby Leeming and guitarist vocalist Tim Digby-Bell whilst studying in Edinburgh. Through a shared love of obscure electronica, subversive Detroit techno as well as the more usual suspects like Aphex Twin and Radiohead the pair went from bedroom experimentalists to recruiting fellow childhood and university pals Seb Dilleyston (violins) Ross Stone (bass) and Toby Lee (lead guitar) to form a fully fledged band.
‘A-B’ is Duologue’s second EP and arrives on the tail of a limited edition 10”, eponymous E.P and it’s self-remixed counterpart E.P that spawned collaboration with graphic designer and VJ Lewis Kyle White resulting in the remix videos that are currently hosted online at duologuemusic.co.uk. The bands ambitious writing; Leeming’s hypnotising heavy beats and poet Digby-Bell’s fractured lyrics, which often tell of their frustration with the monotony of the everyday. Their escapism is the excess of noise and they clash together opposites by challenging genres, as in the haunting electro ballad of ‘Endless Imitation’, and the rock dance track of ‘Push It’.
‘A-B’ is a taster of this unique, band’s ability to throw you in the audio tumble dryer and leave you euphoric, elated and always thinking.
