Premiere :: Tincture ‘Tryst’ EP

March 4th 2014


Luke Dalton aka Tincture has been making a name for himself online with his unique production style: blending spacey shoegaze with crisp beats and a dash of synth pop syrup. With an impressive series of bootlegs and remixes (including a particularly badass garage edit of ‘Genie In A Bottle’) doing the rounds over the last few years, Tincture is finally ready to drop his first official EP, Tryst. We’re more than pleased to give you the premiere listen right here on the Flog.

Tryst offers an opening up of Tincture’s musical mind. Glimpses of R’n’B and UK garage and minimal techno have been present in all his music to date, but this EP sees them develop into something uniquely Tincture (and very Silo Arts). First single ‘Similar Circles’ dropped earlier this year, followed by the title track ‘Tryst’ featuring Hazel Brown (one-third of Melbourne’s Otouto). Due to how much they will get stuck in your head, it’s clear that Dalton has the songwriting skills to match his production prowess.

Dalton says of his music:

“I have a bad habit of idealising relationships, and the lyrics on the EP kind of reflect that. The lyrics in ‘Tryst’ are probably the best example – I wanted them to sound stereotypical and artificial because that’s the kind of love I was caught up in at the time.

Already boasting support slots for Purity Ring and Daedelus, Tincture is about to ramp up his live resume even more – joining UK producer Baths on the Brisbane leg of his Australian tour in March.

Tryst is out in March on Silo Arts & Records
