Bio

Tincture is the moniker of 23 year-old Brisbane musician and producer Luke Dalton. Despite having trained as a classical pianist for most of his childhood, Tincture began dabbling with electronic production in early 2012; turning out a series of smooth-garage inflected remixes and bootlegs that quickly garnered positive responses from both local and international critics. Pegged by many as one to keep an eye on, he has since played in support of names like Purity Ring, Daedelus and Space Dimension Controller, while also receiving national radio airplay and featuring in a mix by XXYYXX. 2013 sees Tincture ready his first official release, with the addition of live vocals and wider instrumentation pushing his sound in a refreshing new direction. A sea of noisy synths and skittering percussion complement breathy, reverb laden vocals hooks; a knowing nod in the direction of both nineties era dream-pop and the new wave of genre-blurring bedroom producers emerging from around the globe. http://soundcloud.com/tincture http://facebook.com/tincturemusic

Could be a big call but I think this is the best Tincture tune I've heard. The mood is precisely rendered and despite the space in the song it feels like it weighs a tonne.

This is wonderful. Love the razor sharp production, and Hazel's guest vocals are a beautiful addition. Excellent.
