The latest single by Anto Dust, “Black City” is a mesmerizing blend of indie pop and psychedelic music that is sure to captivate listeners. Led by the talented Antonella Cossu, the London-based five-piece band has once again proven their ability to create hauntingly beautiful music that transports you to another world.
The song’s production quality is reminiscent of a movie’s soundtrack, thanks to the ‘cinematic influences’ and the fact that it was composed for a short film. The atmospheric details in the mix complement the songwriting direction of the band and create a dreamlike soundscape that is both ethereal and grounded. The vocals by Cossu and Tomos Eames are hauntingly beautiful and perfectly complement the melancholic melody.
Their music has been compared to the beauty of ‘Spooky’ era 4AD shoegaze legends Lush and Melody’s Echo Chamber. With a beatific and euphoric side, Anto Dust effortlessly pulls towards the heavens and a certain strain of psychedelia. In addition to being described as a slice of pristine, otherworldly beauty, the band’s debut single, “1955,” has been praised by Q Magazine for its ability to sound like what it must be like to go to a church service on Atlantis.
Anto Dust creates music that is otherworldly
“Black City” would be a perfect fit for a movie or TV series with a dark and brooding atmosphere. It could easily find a place in shows like “Dark,” or movies like “Black Swan” where the haunting melody and ambient production would add an extra layer of depth to the story.
Overall, “Black City” is a stunning addition to the already impressive discography of Anto Dust. With this latest release, the band continues to push the boundaries of dream pop, creating music that is both otherworldly and deeply emotional. It’s clear that Anto Dust is a band to look out for in the London indie music scene, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next.
