With full band at the ready, it's time for Dune Witch Trails to take the rock and roll scene by storm with the release of their new record Waving At Airports.
Dune Witch Trails is the latest up and coming rock and roll outfit from Glasgow who are just about to release their second EP Waving At Airports, recorded on an old Tascam Portastudio and transferred onto second hand tapes bought at a charity shop.
After the release of their first EP Echo Park by the brain child of original members Billy and Kieran, Dune Witch Trails have now become a full band embarking on a life of gigging after the much needed acquisition of drummer Graham and a bass player Kevin. Their music has evolved into the coherent sound of a band who knows what they want to achieve. This is the sound of their upcoming EP Waving At Airports, recorded at The Green Door Studio in Glasgow with Stu Evans. To give you a sneak peak of what rock and roll goodness to expect, equipment such as an old Roland Chorus Echo and a Plate Reverb, built by Stu himself, feature on a record which is sure to be as spelling binding as the name of the instruments themselves!
Dune Witch Trails are self-titled “proper slackers” inspired by older and weirder varieties of music such as Guided By Voices, Devo, and Stereolab. However these influences do not overshadow their style. You can hear punk, shoegaze, 90's indie rock, but it is cleverly balanced. The new 5 song EP showcases all of the potential of Glasgow’s next greatest rock and roll band with The Cribs-esque Oliver Brown, Age 43 leading the way as the best track of the EP; instantly catchy, instantly memorable. It is the sound of confidence and huge potential mixed with that very special “I don't really give a fuck” attitude.
