Dust Of Us announce debut EP, Never Had The Time

July 2 sees Sydney duo Dust Of Us unveil their meticulously crafted debut EP Never Had The Timea collection of six songs that chart the arc in the Prescott brothers’ creative journey over the past two years. From the EP, they also share a brand new cut – ‘Surrender’ – the pair’s most upbeat track to date. 

Beginning with a pulsing synth and mellotron, the song soon blossoms and explodes into a huge chorus with hints of LCD Soundsystem, Pulp or Gang of Youths. 

“‘Surrender’ is about sliding doors moments; looking back at key pivot points in your life and wondering whether you made the right choice. It’s also about identity – the different masks we wear throughout the course of the day – and how we make little adjustments to our personality based on the situation we’re in. Which is also something we’re aiming to capture with the video.”

All instruments on the EP were played by brother Ed and Lloyd Prescott, with the exception of guest vocals from UK-based Sydney ex-pat Jess Chalker on two songs. All six tracks were co-produced and mixed by Matthew Neighbour (The Avalanches, Matt Corby, Sky Ferreira).

The Never Had The Time EP features two new tracks in addition to previous Dust Of Us singles including ‘Punching Bag’, ‘The Swans’ and ‘7 Years’.  To hear all of this music threaded together paints a full picture for the listener of the fleshed out and textured soundscape that Dust Of Us have been developing over the past two years.

“My brother and I are incredibly proud of these songs. We’ve gradually been chipping away at them in my bedroom for the past couple of years; building them up brick by brick. Our music takes a while to  piece together because it’s quite layered – and also because we’re interested in so many different textures and genres. We have to give it time to understand what it is we’re making and how all the jigsaw pieces fit together.”
