Waiting for a release from London duo D-E-W-L has taken the word hanging to new levels. It was May 2012 when we started feeling all hot under the collar, seductive and smoochy about their online track Red Velvet and it’s only relatively recently that they’ve announced the release of debut single Nobody Make A Sound, which comes from a trip-hop indebted place not that far from Massive Attack. This is night time music full of cinematic slow-motion grooves, a sound that is foreboding and beautifully sinister. Let it slowly invade your personal space like cigarette smoke drifting across the room. Smooth.
If you’re in London you can catch D-E-W-L live at the Shacklewell Arms on March 25th supporting Half Moon Run, the same day as the song is released. Pre-order here.
