Durge EP release: Dirge
“A dirge is a somber song or lament expressing mourning or grief, such as would be appropriate for performance at a funeral.”
Durge have recently released their first EP titled Dirge into the world. A somber swaying EP that relaxes the mind. Strong lyrics that expresses thought and can get you going on about some key points in your life. Amazingly produced at Tunes Studio found in Stellenbosch, the EP is solid, compact and delivers some epic gems through out. It was especially crazy to see the songs being molded and shaped by Mark Ellis since my days in Stellenbosch as a student in 2012 and on! What makes this album so great to listen to is that you can feel almost how they worked on the music, fine tuned it according to responses from live shows and crit given by other talented musicians. This is not just a “spoeg en plak” ep pushed for time and budget. No this is a testimony to thought, actions and selections.
Give the EP a go and let us know what you think, sit back and close your eyes, listen carefully and enjoy this piece of ultimate art!
