Bio

Hi. my name is Erling. Some call me Duke...I don't mind. I used to play drums in a coupla bands (The Hauntingly Beautiful Mousemoon and Mojo Juju & the Snake Oil Merchants) and it was a lot of fun and I learnt many things about life. Being a drummer, my own songs never saw much light of day...so back in 2006/2007 I felt like recording some of them - attempting to lay most of the tracks myself. U know, just to take ideas and words out of my head and into the world somehow. My dear friend Calf (of the Book of Ships) helped me and these three songs are some of them. Someone once said to me that "this is music that will push n pull u, love and lull u, maybe even take care of you" ...I like that. Thanks for listening. find me on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thedukeoferlington Listen to more tunes and/or download my first EP here: http://thedukesoferlington.bandcamp.com/album/to-whom-it-may-not-concern

A prime of example of true musicianship, the introduction of this song really speaks 'less is more' and effortlessly delivers. Perfectly structured, never a dull moment, and the beauty of it all is the originality of this music. The harmonies are superb, and the entrance of the second verse is just absolutely brilliant! Just the way it all fits, the bass and drums demonstrate clearly ...

Perfectly structured, never a dull moment, and the beauty of it all is the originality of this music. The harmonies are superb, and the entrance of the second verse is just absolutely brilliant! Just the way it all fits, the bass and drums demonstrate clearly the role of a rhythm section and how effective one small thing can be in a single moment, again, the 'less is more' thing. The Dukes of Erlington should be getting a heck of a lot more airplay. Triple J, I needn't say it. You know what to do.
