In November 2014, Lost Dawn went from being one of Falmouth’s best kept secrets to a UK-wide one-to-watch. That month saw the release of their debut single ‘Manchild’ - “a great example of indie-rock which combines great guitar hooks, Bolan-like vocals and excites throughout” - Subba Cultcha. The track’s video premiered on NME.com, followed shortly after by heavy coverage of Lost Dawn in the magazine’s two-page ‘Kernow Wave’ feature and play on Radcliffe and Maconie’s BBC 6 Music show. In the same month, Lost Dawn toured the UK with The Red Cords and The Black Tambourines, to celebrate the release of all three bands’ visceral live compilation album ‘The Falmouth Sound’.
Now Lost Dawn are set to release their self-titled debut album, which encompasses some of the garage-rock of aforementioned local bands, but with a more experimental edge and swagger, mixed with hearty portions of 60’s-70’s rock, psychedelia, blues and touches of glam-rock to create what has been referred to as “desert-basked-psych” - NME.
Lost Dawn started out as the killer combination that is frontman Stanley Duke, a one time electronic music artist, but now full time artisan, with a style, demeanor and vocal delivery that could have him mistaken for a love child of Jim Morrison, Marc Bolan and/or Devendra Banhart. Alongside Benjamin Wood, the master of garage production - having produced the records of all three Falmouth Sound bands - as well as already being an accomplished musician with his side-project The Golden Dregs - a track of which can be found on Rough Trade New York’s 80N7 compilation. Now Lost Dawn have become a trio, after promoting touring bassist, Joel McConkey, to a bonafide full-time member.
Lost Dawn’s self-titled debut album was self-recorded and produced in Wood’s home studio in Falmouth. It will be released on 13th April, preceded by the new single ‘Count on Me’ out on 9th February. Both are released through the Easy Action label (home also to The Black Tambourines).
The band will be announcing UK shows in 2015 very soon.
