Naarm/Melbourne duo Deuce celebrate the launch of their self-titled debut album via Dinosaur City Records at Northcote Social Club
A collaboration between visual artist and musician Kayleigh Heydon, who hails from Manchester, and Curtis Wakeling (The Ocean Party / Pop Filter / Velcro), Deuce craft dreamy, evocative indie pop inspired by the likes of Mazzy Star, Galaxy 500, The Triffids, Felt and Beach House. Their debut albums' singles ‘Wildflower’, ‘Antipodes’ and ‘Language of Love’, have seen praise from the likes of triple j, NME, Paper Magazine and The Music, and plays across 4ZZZ, PBS, Triple R and FBi Radio and also caught the ear of Apple Music and Spotify’s editorial teams, featuring on Apple Music’s ‘Indie + Chill’ and Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds: Indie’ playlists.
Deuce matches sincere expressions of nostalgia, forgiveness, love and change with textural instrumental arrangements and dreamy vocal interplay. Without the limitations of an audience or genre in mind when recording their debut album, Deuce see-saws between beautifully slow and atmospheric ballads of love and longing, and upbeat jangle pop.
