Of A Nature Or Degree
Released: 22nd September 2017
A tight, succinct 5 piece that is centred around sharp bursts of rhythmical energy. They hail from Manchester, UK, forming in early 2015 and have made steady and assured progress towards their current sound without sacrificing a continuing developing and experimentation in their music. Their songs, kaleidoscopic in their scope, comment on the human condition and arbitrary, often strange scenarios or themes. The forthcoming debut album has managed to deftly solidify the groups taut, muscular live sound into 12 distinctive songs. Veering from angular, acidic guitar infectiousness and bulldozing bass and drums, to more reflective and spaciously delicate art rock, ‘…Of Nature Or Degree’ is also peppered with flares of free jazz skronk and ruminates with a decimating post-punk minimalism that unequivocally shows DUDS perfectly pitched clarity in their sound and their vision, managing to focus these competing sonic influences into a deadly cohesive long player.."
