In 2001, the initial seeds for the seven-piece rock band Dúné were planted. Heavily inspired by postpunk '80s pop and indie rock, they quickly became known for their energetic live performances on the rock scene and soon became a regular attraction at music festivals.
This led to prestigious gigs, opening local shows for modern legends like Foo Fighters and Muse.
In 2014, Dúné slimmed down to the current line-up of three childhood friends: Piotrek Wasilewski, Ole Bjorn and Mattias Kolstrup.
This naturally rubbed off on their music, which has evolved into a mix of urban rock, hip-hop and electronica. But today, Dúné is as strong as ever, playing sold-out shows throughout their 2016/17 tours and many festivals. They describe their own sound as Iggy Pop meets Diplo at a N.E.R.D concert with Depeche Mode and A-ha hanging out in the bar.
The beat in the verses was created by recording extra drums and distorting them through a Culture Vulture valve distorter and lots of old tube and ribbon mics. There are lots of things going on in the track, so we needed to have breathy parts before the big finale.
