The Duke, Detroit – ‘Summer’s Gone’

Whilst holding onto the faint hope of an Indian reprise, one is tempted to observe the title and muse, “ain’t it just”: this latest offering from The Duke, Detroit is a rather on point soundtrack to the current drift from light to shade. Ahead of forthcoming single ‘Delirious’, ‘Summer’s Gone’ is a further delve intoContinue reading “The Duke, Detroit – ‘Summer’s Gone’”

The Duke, Detroit’s new single ‘Accelerate’ throws us, spinning and stumbling back in time to the mid-80s, through their use of prominent synth and keyboards. This accompanies start-stop vocals, which follow heartbeat-like drumming, until the chorus kicks in which, as the title suggests, causes the track to build and speed up. The Duke, Detroit takeContinue reading “The Duke, Detroit – ‘Accelerate’ [Deaf by Stereo]”
