Dassie • No Echo • 2021

Dassie is the solo project of David Moffatt, best known in South Africa as the guitarist and co-songwriter for indie/alt-rock band The Dirty Skirts. David’s latest Dassie release, No Echo, sees a return to that classically familiar guitar-driven sound (think Bloc Party, Interpol, Razorlight) following the gentle electronica that earned him a South African Music Award nomination for his first Dassie release, Mistress. With No Echo, David manages to skilfully balance the natural optimism of the genre with lyrics that are more soberly focused on the violence and anxiety of the society that surrounds him.
