DUST MOTH

File under: heavy gaze

Dust Moth has a ridiculous pedigree. The Seattle “heavy gaze” band features ex-members of Minus the Bear, These Arms Are Snakes, Undertow and Shift, and the singer from XVIII Eyes (formerly Eighteen Individual Eyes). Dust Moth creates gauzy, angular soundscapes fraught with distortion and fuzz and all the things that make heavy music awesome, but dips a toe in pop music with singer Irene Barber’s lilting vocals.
