AUDIO: Dak DuBois – “Dak DuBois”
Psych-pop singer-songwriter Dak DuBois released his debut album this past week. Recorded entirely in his Riverwest apartment, DuBois’ self-titled record is eight songs that share anecdotes of a person dealing with trauma, confusion and despair within a society in the midst of massive changes. The psychedelic flavors of DuBois’ melancholy, guitar-driven melodies and radiant vocals reflect the displaced, fuzzy psyche of the protagonist as he feverishly seeks out connection and meaning in the world around him. Relevant in the face of historical tipping points that have occurred at frequent intervals in the last few years, Dak DuBois’ album is an imaginative, colorful exercise that reconciles with unrelenting bleakness.
