Dunes: Noctiluca

Dunes are a mysteriously ethereal and minimal trio from Los Angeles. Appropriating pop and experimental music into a familiar swirl, while retaining a fresh outlook and approach, Dunes inhabit a space of tweaking, twisting, imagining moments and emotions from the past, destined to end up as their future. Stephanie Chan, formerly of Austin Texas bands Finally Punk, and The Carrots plays guitar and sings in Dunes, she creates surreal and dreamy narratives with her lyrics and uniquely beautiful, powerful voice. Mark Greshowak plays barritone guitar and sometimes bass, he used to write songs and tour with seattle area band Talbot Tagora, now he and Stephanie weave their melodies back and forth, making lush tones for our eardums. Kate Hall, played drums in Mika Miko before holding down the rhythmic duties and also singing for Dunes. Having released a 12" EP on Mexican Summer, 2 7" EP's, one on Los Angeles label Teenage Teerdrops, the other on San Diego's Art Fag and a tape on Ooga Booga Dunes are primed to release a full length to the world.
