Newcastle post-punk quintet dust are fast cementing thier status as one of Australia's most singular and essential bands. Urgent, mesmeric, and arresting both on and off the stage, the collective have wasted no time in ensuring that their music and message reaches as far as it possibly can.

In March 2023, Dust unveiled their debut EP, 'et cetera, etc,' a testament to their creative prowess and sonic innovation. Blending contemporary Australian post-punk with experimental jazz and electronic influences, Dust has forged a sound that is simultaneously brooding, introspective, and dynamically progressive.

Offering a contemporary take on Australian post-punk, along with elements of experimental jazz and electronic music, dust have curated a sound that is as dark, introspective, and angular as it is powerful and progressive.

As dust continues to evolve and explore new musical territories, together, they’re set to provide Australian music with the sort of powerful jolt that will reverberate for years to come.
