Following the releases of tapes for The Worms and Pete Astor, we are pleased to announce the cassette release for Dunes’ new album, Bitter Charm.
Based out of L.A, Dunes features members of indie punk luminaries Mika Miko and Finally Punk. Bitter Charm is their second album and we are privileged to release it in a strictly limited run of 50 cassettes. These will be available to purchase directly from us, the band, and select record stores in the US and UK.
Bitter Charm, which was produced by Alex DeGroot, sees real movement in Dunes’ sound: there’s an opening of sound and sharpening of songwriting and production, and, in our humble opinion, the album serves as their most complete artistic statement yet. Having taken influence from acts including The Cure and Cocteau Twins, Dunes claim the album ‘celebrates nostalgia for its contribution to the present, and what it takes to arrive at where we are each day.’
