Gritty in their psychedelic-tinted folk-pop, The Dutchess And The Duke maintain much of their lo-fi folk sensibilities on “Hands” while simultaneously progressing in their mastery of song and style. Always a group backed by the sounds of old, they are undoubtedly modern; entirely hip, in “Hands” The Dutchess And The Duke once again fill their vocals with a modern soul. That being said, this song isn’t nearly as rough or choppy as those off their debut, She’s The Dutchess And He’s The Duke, even when production forces it.
Sunset / Sunrise is The Dutchess And The Duke’s upcoming sophomore release. And while it shares the ‘vice versa’ moniker of a Bright Eyes song, the comparisons end there. Sunset / Sunrise will hit stores on October 6 via Hardly Art.
