What could be better? Dustin Tebbutt and Thelma Plum, two of Australia’s best up and coming artists have teamed up for a delicately subtle, balanced tune. Silk is the second track from Tebbutt’s upcoming mini-album Home which will consist of 7 gorgeous tracks – if his recent stuff is anything to go by. The track features the best of Tebbutt and Plum which despite how different their voices are, blend in seamlessly with one another. Tebbutt’s soft tones are overlayed with Plum’s airy vocals, bolstered further by a smattering of acoustic guitars. Like all of Tebbutt’s work, it really only comes to life after a few listens but after that, there’s no denying how compelling the subtle melodies are.
Take a listen below:
The track follows the lead single Home which, naturally, is inspired by his return to his home in Sydney after spending time in the depths of the cold in Scandinavia where he crafted his debut EP The Breach. Since then fans have relished his dulcet tones, scoring sets at Splendour while accompanying artists such as Missy Higgins, Hozier and The Kite String Tangle, who he joined forces with to write Illuminate.
Luckily for us, another tour is headed our way in support of his upcoming album Home – which was written, recorded, produced and even performed by Dustin at his house in Sydney. He is indeed one multi-talented guy.
Intimate setting, Dustin Tebbutt’s voice and perhaps a cameo from Thelma Plum?
