“ one of the most exciting and charismatic breakthroughs of 2019.”
– BRIDGET HUSTWAITE, TRIPLE J
“It’s hard to find an emerging Perth act with more excitement around them then Dulcie.”
“the all-girl supergroup”
– MUSIC FEEDS
Total ray of sunshine and 4-piece indie girl band, Dulcie have revealed their brand new single and video Dust listen here. As premiered by triple j on Monday, Dust is an enjoyable 3 minutes to switch off from the world and enter Dulcie’s universe. A place where everything is happy and carefree, something we could all use a little of right now.
Duclie are Ashleigh Carr-White, Timieka Denton, Saskia Brittain and Madison Hanley, and are fast-becoming one of the most exciting acts to come, not only out of Perth, but in the whole country. With music made up of mesmerising harmonies, smooth melodic layers, beautiful arrangements and driving rhythms it’s easy to fall in love with Dulcie. Accompanied with their vibrant personality, you’ll find yourself a new BFF with Dulcie.
The girls refuse to accept that there can only be one lead singer. In keeping with their ‘all in this together’ mentality, they uniquely interchange between three vocalists, which makes their sound even more fun and distinctive. They’ve tried tirelessly to define their indie pop-inspired style but instead have arrived at a conclusion that their soaring hooks and inventive melodies simply could not be confined to the limits of one genre and then went surfing.
Dust is accompanied by a super cute music video directed by Liam Fawell and was shot in and around Perth, WA. Check it out below:
Of Dust, the band explain, “It’s fair to say that most of us have been short-sighted going into things before. There never seems to be any red flags in the beginning, it’s exciting and easy to dive in head first. ‘Dust’ is a song about realising something isn’t what you thought and as time goes on you lose touch of what it was that was good for you in the first place.”
Formed in April, 2018 the band have spent much of their first year together constantly touring sharing stages with acts such as G Flip, San Cisco, Spacey Jane, Polish Club, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets as well as making appearances at BIGSOUND and Groovin The Moo. Not being able to really leave Perth as a result of Covid-life, the girls have still found a way to connect with their fans whether it be doing Isol-aid or Couch concerts gigs.
Their idiosyncratic style immediately turned heads at triple j, and Ocean Alley dubbed their soulful debut single Fall their favourite track of 2019. 2020 hasn’t been everyone’s year, but for Dulcie it’s been wild making music in the studio with producer Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe) and rehearsing hard for some very special and energetic live shows later this month and early next year supporting Ocean Alley. Full list of upcoming tour dates below.
Dulcie’s electric presence cannot be denied and it’s been a non-stop ride, the best part is that they’re just getting started.
