The Dying Seconds

Formed in 2007 by David Cantan and Jack Quilligan, The Dying Seconds have now expanded out into a septet. If they’re adding new members to reflect their growth in popularity (and I’m sure they are), then they’ll be hitting double figures very soon.

The band’s debut single, ‘Mora Minn’, due for release on 5 Sep, is a subtle and wonderful mix of piano, percussion and glitchy electronica which quietly builds over four minutes, its vocals becoming ever more forceful. The video for the track (watch below), which was released last week, only adds to the song’s mood and feel. A visual representation of how the band might grow if they do indeed adopt the policy mentioned above, it finds them in an underground car park joined by an ever-increasing number of percussionists.

For more, the band’s SoundCloud profile is well stocked with music, including the B-side to ‘Mora Mina’, ‘Kid Logic’, and several older songs. You’ll be able to hear even more when the band release their forthcoming album next year.
