Du Tonc (Matt from Van She + Mighty Mouse) on tour, making NYC live debut this week (dates & song streams)
by Andrew Sacher
Du Tonc is the new duo of Matt Van Schie of Australian synth pop band Van She and London producer Mighty Mouse. Since forming less than a year ago, they've released three strong singles, "Darkness," "Surging Memories," and "Rise." Mighty Mouse's nu-disco production and Matt's knack for the same kind of impossibly catchy tunes he does in Van She come together really well, and it results in some serious Delorean/Cut Copy-style summer jams. Matt's voice is also a little reminiscent of modern day Julian Casablancas, so if you liked that song Julian did with Daft Punk, these tracks are recommended for you too.
Du Tonc are currently on a North American tour, and they'll make their NYC debut with a live set at Glasslands this Friday (6/28). It's a FIXED party that also includes Mighty Mouse doing an opening set, and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P are on the bill too. All tour dates are listed below.
In addition to doing Du Tonc together, Matt Van Schie and Mighty Mouse are also launching a new label this month, Nightfilm. To celebrate the launch of that label, Mighty Mouse released his own new single, "Feel Alright." Stream that track, along with all three Du Tonc tracks, and their list of tour dates, below...
