A lot of people prescribe to the notion that artists tend to do their best work in the early part of their careers – and from then on they are always chasing that same
If that’s true, then Du Tonc are slap bang in the middle of that fabled “early zone”, when hit follows hit and it seems like it’s the easiest job in the world.
‘Animals’, for our money, is every bit as good as ‘Darkness’, and ‘Surging Memories’; and ‘Every Song’ for that matter – they all seem to possess the same balance of heartfelt emotion from Matt Van Schie’s vocals combined with Mighty Mouse’s jaunty arrangements and choice of psychedelic synth palette.
What you have with Du Tonc is an act in that “special zone” where it comes so naturally to them – so it’ll come as no surprise that an album is in the works, and we for one can’t wait.
Out March 30 via Eskimo.
