Australian alt-punk outfit dust release collage-like and sonically diverse debut EP, ‘et cetera, etc‘.

The EP was recorded in its entirety on guitarist-saxophonist Adam Ridgway’s family farm in Edwardsville, together with guitarist-vocalists Gabriel Stove and Justin Teale, bassist Liam Smith and drummer Kye Cherry. dust said the experience ‘cemented their friendship’. 

dust said about their release:et cetera, etc as a title is to show all the different angles and styles we take on writing music while still sounding like us. Recording and living in the farmhouse all together made us comfortable and uninterrupted. We’d play Twin Peaks cuts and Blade Runner scenes projected on the walls, contributing to the mood in the overall recording.”

“Don’t idolise me, idolise you”, Gabriel sings on ‘Joy (Guilt), a high-energy punk track full of shouty lyrics and distorted guitars. Ward 52‘ is heavy on the drums and features a chorus that has potential to stay stuck in the listener’s head for days. 

et cetera, etc is collage-like with every track showcasing a different facet of the group’s complex sound. But they all have one thing in common: they make the listener want to immediately book a show and mosh to them.
