Dunes share new single & music video 'Hard'


Over the last six months, Dunes have situated themselves on the kiwi music scene as ones to watch, following the release of their debut single 'Horses'. Today, the magnetic synth-pop sister duo (Jamie & Tessa McDell) have unveiled their new single 'Hard', off their forthcoming debut record, with a Benjamin Brooking-directed music video in which younger sister Tessa take the lead.

Written by the sisters and produced by Thomas Healy (Paquin, Tiny Ruins), 'Hard' follows in the footsteps of its sleek predecessor in presenting a melodic city of hooks, showcasing the family disposition for strong melody crafting and songwriting. Dreamy, melancholic synth pads punctuate the breezy rhythmic feel as we're induced to the painful depths of young love.

Having spent most of their formative years apart, the two sisters came together over the last two years, and wrote an album's worth of material as they've got to know each other. The result is refreshingly honest, and relatable as much as it is autobiographical.

The pair's debut single 'Horses' took on the world in May this year, gathering attention towards the sisters' synthpop side project after being uploaded to Soundcloud and shared around by fans.
