DUSKY PRESENT TRIPPY, ONE-TAKE MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “LONG WAIT” (FEAT. SOLOMON GREY)

09.15.2016

Premiered via Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show as Hottest Record“Long Wait” is the latest single to be taken from Dusky’s anticipated forthcoming album Outer. Today, Dusky present the trippy official music video – all shot in one take underwater.  Outer is set for release on October 14th  and is available for preorder HERE.

“Directing a one-take video underwater was great fun,” explained director Noel Paul. We synchronized the action sonically, by banging a rock against the side of the pool underwater. Meanwhile our actor Marcos was able to hold his breath for the entire 3 minutes over and over again while his body cooled down to a scarily low temperature. There’s no trickery, he really held his breath!”

Embodying the melting pot of influences that Outer represents, “Long Wait” brings together cinematic strings, rave bleeps, chugging grooves and the haunting vocals of Joe Wilson from Solomon Grey in Dusky’s unique style. It follows the wavey, industrial techno surge of “Sort It Out Sharon” featuring godfather of grime Wiley, and the anthemic, 90s-nodding electronica workout “Ingrid Is A Hybrid.”

A journey through the respected duo’s many tastes and influences, the 11 tracks on Outer touch on everything from Belgian techno, UK rave and prog house to ambient, new beat and electronica, offering curveball collaborations with the legendary Gary Numan and the aforementioned Wiley along the way.

From the Orbital-referencing synth-and-strings crescendos of intro “All We Ever Needed” to the UK house meets hardcore-era Prodigy of “Runny Nose,” the duo’s unique capacity for inventive sampling and cleverly reshaping their halcyon influences remains as dominant as it did on their breakthrough underground club singles.

Alongside the album’s release, Nick and Alfie will be taking their new audio-visual live show on tour across the UK, with full headline European and North American DJ tours announced alongside. An Australia/New Zealand tour will follow in the coming months. Current dates below. Ticket links here: duskymusic.com/live
