Kerala Dust have released “Future Visions”, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming second album, Violet Drive, which will be released on February 17, 2023.
Talking about the track, the band said: “There was an old mellotron from the 1960s in this studio we were working from in Berlin, and one night I started working on this descending chord pattern, which then became “FutureVisions”. The song is about lying awake, late at night, thinking about the things you’re going to say to this person that you’re hopelessly in love with, and how you wish you could get closer to them.”
The three British musicians Edmund Kenny on vocals and electronics, Harvey Grant on keys, and Lawrence Howarth on guitar make up Kerala Dust, a band that was founded in London in 2016 and is currently split between Berlin and Zurich.
With their new album Violet Drive, Kerala Dust has created a distinctly European sound that is torn between the past and the present.
Their music includes blues and Americana thrillingly interwoven with non-traditional electronic beats. The band was formed out of a developing passion for electronic music combined with a history in independent bands.
Three years after their formation, they played clubs all over the world and honed a somewhat improvised but always fluid live performance that freed their songs from the confines of their recorded forms and prepared the ground for a band determined to shatter conventions and keep rewriting their own story.
