Post punk Quartet Dusker have followed up their first EP with a second, titled simply EP 2. It carries on their DIY work ethic, Ep titles and superb sound. The band have shared the first track ‘Leo’ as a teaser.
An EP to take you right back to the late 90s and for me many a sweaty practice room. The flourishes and lead playing is joyous and there a sense of urgency from the band in getting their musical ideas down on record and out there and heard. From pogo-ing punk to moments of slowdown ballad from tracks ‘Leo’ and ‘Quality Papers’ the EP incorporates a lot of dynamics and styles. The wandering bass line and aggressive vocals of ‘Temple Bar’ are the highlight. Exceptional punk vocals and drenched in delicious feedback. Perfection in just short of 4 minutes.
There is loads of bands doing what these guys do, but its there exceptional songwriting and the interplay between the guitars that make this EP.
