Looking for something a little off-kilter, yet still pleasing? We’ve got just the song for you. Dusted has just dropped his new track, “Dead Eyes”, appearing on his sophomore album, Blackout Summer, which was just released on April 6. Dusted is the musical moniker of Toronto’s Brian Borcherdt, who was a founding quarter of 2000’s four-piece Holy Fuck and has operated his solo project under Dusted since 2012. Accompanied by his wife, Anna Edwards, and Loel Campbell, among others, for live shows, Borcherdt brings an entirely different sound than his previous projects with Dusted.

With a hazy and quirky pop sound, Dusted creates a mellow soundscape reminiscent of Wilderado. Don’t be fooled by the easy-going exterior of this song; Borcherdt still manages to back a punch in this gentle tune. Pairing skillful guitar solos with consistent percussion makes for a solid track. Give “Dead Eyes” a listen today!
