Dub reg­gae in­spired

South Canterbury Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Erin Crow­ley back home as part of a dub reg­gae duo.

She teamed up with New­cas­tle na­tive Sid Berry in Oc­to­ber last year to form Dub Cy­mat­ics.

‘‘Mu­si­cally, it’s re­ally dub reg­gae in­spired, with also quite an up beat drum and base-ee [sic] al­most feel, we re­ally wanted to do live drum and bass.’’

Dub Cy­mat­ics have been tour­ing New Zealand for about three months, Crow­ley said.

‘‘We’ve just been cruis­ing around South Is­land North Is­land and back to the south for the last bit.’’

In Jan­uary, their song Dance Til To­mor­row made it to the top of Aus­tralian ra­dio sta­tion Triple J’s Un­earthed chart.

‘‘Un­earthed is like an undis­cov­ered mu­sic chart in Aus­tralia and we were num­ber one for a week.’’

‘‘So that’s pretty ex­cit­ing ... pretty stoked about that.’’

They also had another song in the num­ber two spot - Truth.

‘‘Lyri­cally we want to be con­scious, so we want to talk to real stuff,’’ she said.

‘‘ Dance Til To­mor­row is quite up beat and fun. Our song Truth ... we wrote that one about our tour that we were just about to em­bark on in New Zealand.’’

The Dub Cy­mat­ics show will be at the Speights Ale House from about 3pm on April 8.
