London duo D-E-W-L have outlined plans for their debut single ‘Nobody Make a Sound’.
Formed in 2011, D-E-W-L have remained in the shadows. Leon Jean-Marie and John Harrison - for 'tis their names - have been steadily beavering away at their East London studio, providing nimble re-workings for the likes of St Lucia, Foxes, MSMR and WooWoos.
Now it seems that D-E-W-L are ready to step out under their own name. The duo have unveiled plans for their debut single, with ‘Nobody Make a Sound’ set to drop on February 25th through Make Mine Records.
The track itself is a hazy, ethereal jam that seems to form into its own unique structure - like watching melting water slowly turn back into ice. Packed with unresolved tension, the hidden drama of ‘Nobody Make a Sound' is explored in a new video shot by London director Alexander Ingham Brooke.
Filmed in one night in the outskirts of London, it features an entirely deaf cast. A note from the film maker: “I wanted to create a very internal state for the girls and for sound not to interfere with D-E-W-L'S track. I decided to play with the title 'Nobody Make A Sound' and shoot a film solely in Sign Language.”
