Dub reggae inspired
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.
