DASH | The Day The Rain Comes Down

The Day The Rain Comes Down, the latest release for DASH is a spine-tingling affair. Opening with ‘Secrets’, I can hear elements of Missy Higgins, Sarah Blasko and Sally Seltmann in the vocals. Piano and eerie guitar and string sections make this an impressive debut track to listen to. It’s quite a slow burner of a track, but has some edgy electronic and jangly guitar lines building towards its four minute climax.
Recorded in Gisborne, in regional Victoria, this is an impressive listen, if singer songwriter, broody piano and infectious grooves and lyrics are your thing, then this is for you. Having played at St Kilda Festival earlier this month, the band are touring around at the moment on their Cautiously Tour. The more and more that you listen to the EP, the more infectious the music becomes. A wide acoustic folk pop landscape, this is blissful local talent that you should definitely be supporting. From Melbourne and having worked alongside Colin Ledbetter, who has produced the likes of Whitley and Sarah Blasko, this is simplistic pop music with worldly inspiration and attitudes.
I urge you to go online and listen to The Day The Rain Comes Down, don’t skip a track either. This is a great listen from start to finish.
