Written, performed, produced and mixed by Duologue, so goes the credit on 'A-B' the impressive second E.P from the London based five piece. The follow up to their eponymous first E.P this new release is yet further proof of this experimental bands ability to fuse audio technology with good old-fashioned heartfelt songs.
In between retreating to the wilds of South England to write and produce 'A-B', the band have found time to self-curate a number of sell out shows with the likes of Matthew Dear, Darkstar, Breton Worship and When Saints Go Machine as well as joining Metronomy for their Shepherds Bush Empire show earlier this year.
In addition the band remixed a counterpart E.P to their debut release and collaborated with up-and-coming director and VJ, Lewis Kyle White (2 Many DJ’s, Radio Soulwax, Crystal Fighters) to produce four remix videos currently being hosted online at www.duologuemusic.co.uk.
“I guess we would consider ourselves musicians and producers in the way we approach a track, we write the song, break it apart and build it up layer by layer, using as many new sounds and beats as possible and pushing it as far as it can go.”
Deceptively named, Duologue’s first incarnation was born from the meeting of music obsessive’s techno DJ and beats programmer Toby Leeming and guitarist and vocalist Tim Digby-Bell whilst studying in Edinburgh. Through a shared love of obscure electronica, subversive Detroit techno as well as the more usual suspects like Aphex Twin and Radiohead the pair went from bedroom experimentalists to recruiting fellow childhood and university pals Seb Dilleyston (violins) Ross Stone (bass) and Toby Lee (lead guitar) to form a fully fledged band.
