The Duskwhales

PREMIERE: Indie dream pop The Duskwhales unveil new video, Friday The 13th

An exclusive premiere for Deli readers! The Duskwhales have released the first video from their forthcoming album, Sorrowful Mysteries. The single, Friday The 13th, heralds forward momentum for the DC-based trio. Recorded in a professional-grade studio, the song is mature, relative to the band's previous efforts. Where once the energy was unbridled, it now feels tamed – almost simmering and ready to burst forth like a stalking panther. Stirring lyrics and keys reminiscents of The Animals' Alan Price, the band masterfully builds and releases the musical tension, revealing the honed craft of their melodies. Capping the mood is somber video art by Outlet Mall Brain Asylum. Catch The Duskwhales' album release show at Jammin' Java in Vienna on 4/8! -Jonathan Goodwin  


Indie pop rock trio The Duskwhales play the Rock & Roll Hotel, 9/19

Rocking their way up from Manassas to DC’s best venues, The Duskwhales captivate their listeners with their relentless energy and dazzling rhythms. Fun beats and an uncanny ability to mix blues rock roots with pop and indie overtones makes them a formidable act to behold. Pooling influences from a diverse array of musicians, from Vampire Weekend to Jack White to The Doors, listening to their recent self-titled LP is akin to giving the brain a vacation. They’ll bring their high-buzz performance to the Rock & Roll Hotel on 9/19. 21+ and $8. -Jonathan Goodwin
