Eight months ago Du Tonc burst onto the scene with their debut single "Darkness," the perfect fusion of electronica and indie rock that saw support from Tensnake, Mark Ronson, Gigamesh and more. The brainchild of Matt Van Schie of Van She and Mighty Mouse, Du Tonc's style is deliciously indie, striking a delicate balance between synthpop hooks and Washed Out-caliber vocals. Driven by Van Schie's melancholy crooning, "Island's" chorus eclipses its funky guitar riffage with an infectious lo-fi charm, a style that is at times ghostly and gripping despite it's chillwave aesthetics.
"Island" will be released on October 14th on Du Tonc's own Nightfilm label. The duo are also preparing for their upcoming live tour.
