Track: Mucky Pup Shine On Electronic-Funk-Pop Debut ‘Brushing Off The Dust’

Bringing together tight electronic beats, twinkling atmospherics and a bouncing bass line, rising duo Mucky Pup make their impressive debut with ‘Brushing Off The Dust’.

The duo of Erik Miles (producer and engineer for the likes of Soft Play, Baby Dave (Isaac Holmann), Kate Nash, Lady Bird and Hotwax) and vocalist Heidi Haswell (guest vocalist on a number of records including for Soft Play & Baby Dave), have already seen their debut single gain support from BBC Radio 6 music and across tastemaker press.

Opening with a haunting loops of bells which floats throughout the track creating a etherial undertone to the tracks catchy vocals and bouncing energy, the track gradually builds through its lo-fi 4 to the floor beat, funk tinted bass line and supremely catchy, soaring lead vocals. Effortlessly cool and euphoric, as the track ebbs and flows through subtle vocal processing and electronic brass sounds creating atmosphere whilst retaining an infectious danceability and commercial edge. The result is a track that is as comparable to Jamie XX as is it is Girls Of The Internet and Jungle.

Speaking about the new single, the duo explain: “‘Brushing Off The Dust’ felt like it was the first time when we really combined our talents in the most raw and pure way and everything about the process came so naturally that the track seemed to just unveil itself. We both bounced off each other in a seamless way, bringing different ideas and elements to the table which ended up marrying into the sound. We both knew from the get go that we wanted to make a track that was feel good and made you want to move but also hosted a slightly seductive and inviting atmosphere. From there onwards the track unfolded itself and formed the sound that is Mucky Pup.”
