After years of playing and touring in multiple bands in close-knit DIY scenes, the members of Dusker formed in Leicester in 2019 and quickly set about a string of high profile shows with the likes of Kagoule, Petrol Girls, Fresh and Peaness. Quickly developing a reputation for raucous, energetic lives shows.

Debut release ‘EP 1’ marries wide-open, exploratory post-punk with math, noise and post-hardcore accents. Dancing driven guitars, strong rhythms and spitting vocals combine to show Dusker’s myriad of far-reaching influences. The record touches on concepts of platonic love, mutual support and individual empowerment. ‘EP 1’ was recorded and produced by the band’s close friend and collaborator Liquid Tony of Liquid Tone Productions and was self-released in December 2019. Follow-up ‘EP 2’, released on Leeds’ Muzai Records in August 2020, is a confirmation of intent and a further sonic refinement which received airplay on Dean Jackson’s BBC Introducing show and press across Europe and Japan. Fusing raucous punk energy with swooping, contemplative melodies and feedback-riddled textures, Dusker both covered new musical ground and solidified their vein of noisey post punk.
