Following the recent release of their eponymous debut single, Dust In The Sunlight today unveil the official music video for the track. This atmospheric track showcases their stunning vocal harmonies and the transportive nature of their music. Music for the moments when the night and morning meet.
“Last summer, we headed out to Berlin to collaborate with Alex Newton (@tallguypictures) on our debut music video. We also managed to get DOP Bobby Goulding and camera assistant Edmund Renew on board, completing a dream team of creative,” they explain. ”Rather than following a narrative for the video, we focused on creating different moods while we performed the song. Annie’s parts were based in very natural areas, while Billy’s were more urban. The contrast in locations and meditative dancing (something we never thought we’d do in a video!) created an otherworldly, purgatory-style effect – drawing on the themes of shift and change in the song.
Following a chance meeting at Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly’s studio singing backing vocals for his new album, singer-songwriters Billy Wright and Annie Rew Shaw quickly discovered how well their voices melded together. That evening, they wrote their first two songs together and Dust In The Sunlight was formed.
After multiple writing and studio sessions interwoven between other projects, the pair finally decided to form a band. The duo found and built their songwriting formula around Annie’s ear for melody and Billy’s eye for narrative lyrics.
Bonding over a love of artists like Elliott Smith, Sufjan Stevens and Joni Mitchell, Dust In The Sunlight is a curation of delicately-crafted, contemplative songwriting set against a landscape of brooding, alternative pop.
Within 12 months of their formation, Dust In The Sunlight caught the attention and signed a record deal with the label Project Melody. Together, they plan to release their first E.P in 2020.
