There’s some big news from Duskus today! I’ve been a fan of the talented London-based artist for a minute as he’s been a staple on the bitbird roster for some time. Now he’s switching things up and has become the newest member of ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. Along with this exciting announcement, he’s shared an emotive new single “I Can Change Your Mind” that we’re stoked to be premiering today.
“In Retrospect is a journey to find myself as an artist and as a person. It is discovering how fragile and delicate this world is, comparing how people choose to live, and the different pathways that they take. I believe that life doesn’t have a guideline, and there’s no right or wrong way to live, each decision we have made in the past, has shaped our power and knowledge now. In Retrospect showcases my existential mind drifting in and out of different life stages, to create a journey of wonder and mystery.” – Duskus
This vibrant new track is the first off his forthcoming In Retrospect EP due via FFC on October 11. Duskus puts his dreamy sound design front and center on this new hypnotic new song that I’m surely going to have on repeat for a minute. “I Can Change Your Mind” started out as a guitar riff and vocals and starts off as a shimmering, slow burner that evolves throughout. His undeniable style is as unique as ever on this new track as he explains “‘I can change your mind’ is a journey about someone opening their mind, and exploring new possibilities in pursuit of the truth.”
We can’t wait to hear what else this new chapter with FFC has in store for Duskus, and he kicks things off right. Stay tuned for the full EP and enjoy!
