Dust In The Sunlight release their eponymous debut single on March 27th through Project Melody. This atmospheric track showcases their stunning vocal harmonies and the transportive nature of their music. Music for the moments when the night and morning meet.
Speaking about their debut single they explain, “’Dust In The Sunlight’ was one of the first songs that we wrote together, during a session at an artist warehouse in North London that Annie was living in at the time. The song speaks about being caught up with someone who’s emotionally unavailable and being prepared to compromise your own values in order to keep them around. We liked the imagery of the title so much that it became the namesake of the band.”
Following a chance meeting at Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly’s studio singing backing vocals for his new album, singer-songwriters Billy Wright and Annie Rew Shaw quickly discovered how well their voices melded together. That evening, they wrote their first two songs together and Dust In The Sunlight was formed.
After multiple writing and studio sessions interwoven between other projects, the pair finally decided to form a band. The duo found and built their songwriting formula around Annie’s ear for melody and Billy’s eye for narrative lyrics.
Bonding over a love of artists like Elliott Smith, Sufjan Stevens and Joni Mitchell, Dust In The Sunlight is a curation of delicately-crafted, contemplative songwriting set against a landscape of brooding, alternative pop.
Within 12 months of their formation, Dust In The Sunlight caught the attention and signed a record deal with the label Project Melody. Together, they plan to release their first E.P in 2020.
