Bristol’s The Desert mix low key elements of alternative music, with elements of mellow acoustic pop, dream pop and even a few trip hop beats on their debut EP. Their music looks to the past, obviously, but somehow doesn’t sound like a complete nostalgia trip. In just four songs, they weave musical magic that sound absolutely superb approached on cold and dark winter nights.
Male/female dreampop duo The Desert started to make waves in 2017 and seem set to continue their rise in popularity during 2018.
They’ve just released a no-frills new video shot in their hometown of Bristol, which acts as a great downbeat visual aid for their single ‘Half-Hearted’. The full video can be streamed below.
A collaboration between singer/songwriter Gina Leonard and producer Tom Fryer, The Desert take folk and pop melodies and wrap them within dark and dreamy electronica, coming back with a sound that evokes the more spacious end of 90s triphop and dream pop.
