Premiere: Plant Plants – Dust Me Down (Alternative Instrumental)

Drift off to this lullaby mix from the enticing London duo.


Words by: Aimee Cliff

London band Plant Plants are turning heads right now with their sparse, tense and very literal (take a look at that dusty press shot) single Dust Me Down. Asking the listener to give them another chance and start over, it's a very tentative track that bristles with tension until sharp sheets of synth cut through its later moments; in this exclusive alternative mix, the pair strip all this unease from the mix to boil it down to its soft-footed, glowing elements. Once again, it's a straightforward electronic piece that achieves an unmistakable atmosphere (this time it's a gentle music box) with a few key elements used sparingly. Seems like Howard Whatley and Stuart Francis – along with their production partner, Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco –  are on to a winning formula. 

This Is Music will release Dust Me Down on the 7th October 2013.
