Dusk, The: The Dusk

I don't know if this is an EP, a demo disc or an official independent release, but the self-titled slab of self-described "indie/alternative/electro rock" that landed at SoT HQ oozes with a cool Eighties dance-club vibe that may or not please regular readers of this site.

Not to be confused with Dusk by The The, this seven-song disc is full of catchy songs with radio-ready hooks. Samples and ambient synths combine with a pop savviness that belie the fact that The Dusk formed just a little more than a year ago, in August 2010. You'll swear you heard "It Comes Again" on the radio in 1988, but these five Englishmen probably weren't even alive back then. Vocalist James Grierson has the perfect voice for this kind of material: expressive, with a slight falsetto. His performances here bounce like a tight ball of confidence.

This won't wind up on my year-end best-of list. But if there's a little mainstream music in your bloodstream, The Dusk and The Dusk provides a refreshingly retro way to spend a half-hour of your listening time.

Track Listing:
1) Falling
2) The Other Side (Radio Edit)
