We say

This gorgeous debut track is from north London duo Dust In The Sunlight. Singer-songwriters Billy Wright and Annie Rew Shaw met while singing backing vocals for Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly’s new album and was immediately struck at how well their voices melded together. After several writing and studio sessions, the pair found and built their songwriting formula around Annie’s ear for melody and Billy’s eye for narrative lyrics. And oh boy, it sounds glorious. Musically it’s a fine blend of Royksopp, The XX and London Grammar with the harmony-laden lushness of First Aid Kit driving the song along while hints of Elliott Smith and Joni Mitchell caress the narrative lyrics of this beautiful number. It’s early days but tastemakers like BBC Introducing, Radio X and Clash are already fans. You can watch the video shot in Berlin here. We love the grand ambition of their sound, all of which bodes well for their debut EP later this year.
