Dance floor ready, synthesised to perfection.
You may already be familiar with Dominic Gore, formerly one third of South London trio Little Cub. Since the trio disbanded, Gore has emerged with a solo project that builds on this earlier work, reimagining sleek electronics into something more multifaceted and undeniably personal. Venturing out on his own has allowed Gore to re-examine himself, using music as a lens by which to learn, hone and take ownership of his self-expression.
"Even seeing myself through my music has helped me process not only my own neurosis but given me a language to reach out to others."
Debut album All These Things is an intensely dynamic, spirited body of work, offering a romanticised new-wave soundscape, bolstered by a compelling and rich tapestry of highly danceable, highly crafted electropop textures.
DC Gore is carving out a new identity all of his own, so acute is his technique, artistry and imagination; the divine combination for this new era. We can't wait to come along for the ride.
