I confess that I’ve never heard of Dustin Tebbutt before, yet on a rainy summer’s morning, his subtle and hallowing tunes seem to be quite a perfect fitting. But to the basics: Tebbutt is a half Sweden-, half Australia-based musician whose music strongly resembles those sounds of such alikes as Justin Vernon: Because both master to assemble the soft with the dreamy without sounding like candy floss, but rather exactly like the landscape on Tebbutt’s picture above: Mountains form the echo chambers for his melodies, which are reaching forward without being too pushy, yet sound quite restless, undermined by pliant percussions. Oh, hello cliché? Well, maybe a bit. But it is a cliché probably a lot of us have enclosed in our musical hearts.
There seems to be more to come from Tebbutt’s side soon, so hold your eyes and ears open. Until then, you can already get the single The Breach for free from Tebbutt’s soundcloud.
