O quarteto de Los Angeles, Dunes faz um curioso mix de pos punk com shoegazer mas esqueçam as muralhas de guitarras, ruídos e distorções, aqui a banda se concentra em criar melodias viajantes em climas envoltos a melancolia e uma certa dose de escuridão.
Algo como se Siouxsie Sioux fizessem uma jam com o Velocity Girl. Seu primeiro álbum saiu em 2009 pelo cultuado selo Mexican Summer e já esta esgotado há um bom tempo, logo após o debute homônimo, em 2012 o Dunes soltou outro álbum, Noctilluca que segue a linha lógica do primeiro trabalho.
Grande banda que nos deve novos trabalhos,
***** Interview with Dunes *****
Q. When did Dunes started, tell us about the history...
A: Kate: Dunes started as a living room projected between roommates. I was just kicked out of Mika Miko and started to go to college. Stephanie from Texas and Mark from Seattle moved in and started writing songs together. Stephanie and Mark were also recently dismembered from their prior bands at the time(Talbot Tagora and Finally Punk). We all fell into each others laps having fun writing songs and playing shows. In the beginning for our live shows we had collected something like 50 flash lights and would pass them out to the crowd, who would then participate in the light show and experience of the music. You could tell when people were into a song because the flash lights would start to move faster. We've gone through many musical revolutions, some of them are secret, but now we have a new member David Reichardt from Abe Vigoda. Currently we are writing and recording new songs with him. He's changed the dynamics but coincidentally in the tradition of Dunes comes from another band and ended up with us.
Q: Who are your influences?
A: Kate: I just watched this documentary about the youngest girl to sail around the world..
