Oakland, CA duo A/S/L, the brainchild of Linnae Dosumu and Cliff Mattis, is premiering a new song titled “Deserve” on Bullett Magazine.
The track appears on their debut EP, “Love Will Let You Down,” which will be released on August 4 via fledgling indie label, Empty Waves).
Another track, “Le Monde est à Nous,” premiered last month on Black Book.
The duo accurately channel apparitions of Purity Ring and Burial – all the while still exercising a charismatic originality that can only be perceived as haunting.
“Love Will Let You Down” was recorded over the course of a year, consistently held to the unique and sometimes perfect standards set by Mattis – and it shows. The production is gushing audible emotive accents and small tweaks that are only pleasantly offset by Dosumu’s precise, yet graceful, vocal delivery.
The EP was mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden.
