Having earned critical acclaim with previous single ‘One of Us’ earlier this year, Dunx is back with another stellar release.
Talented Irish-Australian musician, sound engineer and producer Dunx is back with a fresh soft rock offering in the form of single 'I Land At Sea'.
Known for his work with Inhaler, Sorcha Richardson and U2, he's been seen taking bigger strides in his own rock direction, and this single is one that will have you dreaming of open roads, vast seas, deserted deserts and hazy summers filled with late nights and early sunrises.
"‘I Land at Sea’ contemplates the meaning of the word “home” and what it means to belong in the world when you don’t really have one," a press statement from the act reads. "The song was conceived on a sunny Sydney beach, written in the Utah desert and then brought to life in a locked down wintry Dublin."
"It blends the sounds of country, surf blues, desert rock and a sprinkling of hip hop inspired electronic elements and samples, including a horse race announcer in Piute County, Utah."
Inspired by the likes of Pixies, Amy Winehouse and Nick Cave; Dunx is making his mark with a highly refined and distinguished guitar-centric sound - filled to the brim with contemplative lyrics.
'I Land At Sea' features Dylan Lynch (Soda Blonde, Little Green Cars) on drums and percussion, was mixed by Brandon Bost, mastered by Idania Valencia at Sterling Sound, NYC and produced by Dunx and David Anthony Curley at The Clinic Recording Studios.
The singer-songwriter has previously worked in the studio and on the road as an engineer, guitar/keyboard tech and producer for the last several years with U2 before finally turning his focus to his own music.
During downtime on tours he spent hours writing, drawing inspiration from travel and nature, filtered through his sometimes sunny, sometimes solemn state of mind. He writes, records, and produces all of his own tracks, most recently at his friend David Curley’s recording studio The Clinic.
Recent releases include his debut single ‘Don’t Gotta Be So Bad’, and most recently ‘One Of Us’, plus a cover of Pixie's ‘Caribou', featuring Dylan Lynch on drums and Saint Sister’s Gemma Doherty on harp.
