♫♪  Dorval & Devereaux - “Heavy Hands”

Speaking of Dido/Mathers, I got an e-mail this morning or last night from the majestic Steven Rosborough stationed at the Moon Glyph outpost. That e-mail contained information about one of the greatest duos formed so far this year: Crystal Dorval (White Poppy) and Beau Devereaux (Samantha Glass). Apparently they grinded out some work about two years ago, but now in full analog form, Dorval & Devereaux come at listeners with 30 minutes of pure pop swelter and melt. Lush vocals echo along a scant rythm comprised of synth tones, minimal drums, and gentle riffing in “Heavy Hands.” As well, TMT favorite Francesco De Gallo (a.k.a. Hobo Cult) made a video of the single, and signals in all sorts of lives across the visually haunted spectrum. Totally complimenting the music.

I already bought my tape. You’ll probably be scanning discogs after it sold out later kicking yourself. So avoid the bruises and snag Dorval & Devereaux’s debut, self-titled tape on Moon Glyph immediately!
