DEMS, a glitchy r ‘n’ b outfit from South London, have shared new single “Night Tales” from their upcoming debut album Muscle Memory, out on 29th November via Sew in Love Records. The song is a delicate atmospheric number, emphasised by Dan Moss’ vulnerable and yet confident vocals.While the singer bears an undoubted resemblance to James Blake and Chet Faker, it is his bandmates jagged and yet soothing compositions that propel the songs forward gloriously.
According to the singer, the most important aspect of the band is their hands on approach to the entire enterprise. He describes their base in Balham, South London as, “creative hub for most things we do. We have shot lots of the music videos there, had choirs and string groups come over for recording sessions, put on intimate shows and recorded and produced the whole of Muscle Memory from a beautiful iron and leather desk we found here.” The inhouse approach seems to have reaped dividends for the burgeoning band.
