Radiohead tool new album paul simon
Before Us [album] is an uplifting lp choc-full of funky and smooth numbers. That somehow manages to dust 6 awesome years of varied influences over Duncan Alex’s own incredibly initial and invigorating prog-pop/rock/RnB end projects. Smooth vocals are set against 70's/80's- style vocoder and fluid, gritty guitar riffing by simply Exmouth local guitar hero Ian Davey, underpinned by alternately comfortable and foot-stomping basslines. This musical technology adventure has several excitement in store, such as the husky hues of guest singer Jess Hatton-Brown. It starts excellent and gets even better, rewarding repeated concentrates, leaving you wanting a lot more. BBC radio described the track ‘Before Us’ as, “so considerably happening that it shouldn’t function but it flippin' well does…we don’t recognize how you do it, just keep doing it!” - So say we all.

Duncan Alex’s fourth album “Before Us” dropped Nineteen March 2016 worldwide on Google music [https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Duncan_Alex_Before_Us?id=Bjdodqeajkqo6rztsvkmrvbqoyy&hl=en_GB], itunes [http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/before-us/id1091633353], bandcamp [http://duncanalex.bandcamp.com/] and CDBaby [http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/DuncanAlex].

Because literally before he was born, Duncan Alex listened avidly to everyone kinds of music (their Mum was a performer). But he 1st felt the itchiness to write his own music in his late adolescents. It started generally with layering vocals and beats, using a cassette walkman to twice up tracks, then doubling those, then getting a keyboard as well as 4-track, then buying a Computer to be able to produce a many more layering and elements.

After many years producing cassette demo tapes at home, he or she worked his means towards actual studio room time, and made a debut Air. It got Australian national airplay on youth station Triple J, and was written up in Rolling Stone publication as “classy and promising".

A whole lot has happened because, in music, along with life - and life’s experiences tried yet failed to draw Duncan faraway from writing and creating in his spare time, along with collaborating with others. He’s written hundreds of songs. He’s published and sung within covers and old ones electric and acoustic bands, and when that first became easy to do so he also collaborated remotely. An in-person collaborator, fellow indie singer-songwriter Jess Hatton-Brown, is now really remote (living in Nantes) and he or she features on a attractively sung track for the new album. The key collaborator on this new lp, however, is Ian Davey. Duncan met this particular rock lord guitarist a few years again, and it became apparent that together they might produce something great, but very different. Numerous demos have been noted, and some have been converted to records for this lp.

Before Us, the fourth album by Duncan Alex, has been described as "very original", "future blues”, "laid back yet invigorating" and “very uplifting”. It’s time for people to hear what the songs of Duncan Alex is about.
