Watch Dunx performing live on the Y&E Series tonight – supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media...
Following the release of his acclaimed single 'I Land At Sea, we're delighted to present Dunx as our next act on the Hot Press Y&E Series – going live on the Hot Press Instagram at 7.30pm this evening.
Irish-Australian artist Dunx is steadily becoming one of the most captivating talents on these shores – with his surf blues and desert rock-flavoured sound on dazzling display on his latest self-produced single, ‘I Land At Sea’.
Armed with a deeply resonant and instantly commanding voice, not unlike Nick Cave, Dunx has previously put in the hard graft behind-the-scenes as a producer and engineer – working with U2, Inhaler, Sorcha Richardson and more – before stepping into the solo spotlight with his debut single, ‘Don’t Gotta Be So Bad’, last year.
The Hot Press Y&E Series is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. Watch Dunx performing live tonight on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7.30pm.
