Live alt/soul trio- binding words of heartache, nonsense social commentary, and polyrhythmic funk grooves.

Discuss your music career.

We started making music together as part of dub-outfit ‘The Piratones,’ in 2012.

 

After releasing 3 EPs and touring the UK festival circuit for a few years, we decided to take to new musical ventures.

 

After going solo for a few months, vocalist, Dan Law, teamed up with ex-bandmates Mikey and Josh to form trio: Dlore.

 

Since our first release, we’ve been working on perfecting our live and recorded sound and hope to release our debut EP towards the end of the year.

Brief us on how to impress fans during a live performance.

Our aim in live shows is the same as our recorded tunes, we just hope that people can relate and take something from it.

List the names of your biggest supporters.

We’re pretty new to the scene, so our biggest supporters are probably these Australians that bought our t-shirts at our Sofar Sounds session in London last year, they were so funny and lovely – they clapped us when we walked into the pub after the show, it was very sweet of them!

Explain what has motivated you so far in your music career.

Songwriting has always been something I’ve done and enjoyed, and the motivation just comes from people liking it!

Discuss your experience as an artist.

As artists who have always worked minimum wage jobs so we can keep making our music in our spare time, our main problem has been money.

 

The industry expects artists to be at a certain level in their career before labels and publishing companies will even approach them, and when you simply don’t have a budget for PR campaigns, etc., it’s difficult to achieve. Luckily, we’re stubborn enough not to let that stop us!

Discuss the story behind the song.

Exploring the danger of an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ attitude, Dlore’s new single IRON takes an instrumentally more relaxed approach than their last single, ‘Jackal,’ as the musicality and words take the lead.

 

The track was recorded and mixed in a cold war bunker amongst a plethora of vintage gear by Norwich’s leading analog engineer, Mikey Shaw.

 

Joining the Norfolk-grown trio were trumpet and trombone players, Joseph Webb and Will Heaton who alongside Dlore’s very own, capture a 60’s feel in this 2020 soul/hip-hop track.

 

Mastered by Bob Macc (De La Soul, DJ Shadow) IRON plays as an introduction to their forthcoming, debut EP which is due for release towards the end of the year.

Tell us how to fund a music project.

Work hard and try to avoid the pub.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you will improve or change in your music.

It’s hard to know really, but whenever we record a new track, we just aim to better the previous!

Discuss vocal training and how you protect your vocal.

I had some vocal lessons at college, but I think the best training is just singing, listening to loads of different music and soak it all up!

.

.

.

 

List your best artists with reasons.

So many! But a few are… D’Angelo, Amy Winehouse, Hiatus Kaiyote, Lady Wray, No Name, Sampa The Great, Cleo Sol… the list goes on.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

My names Dan Law and Dlore are more interesting so I went with that.
