London rockers the Dust Coda have thundered into the New Wave of Classic Rock scene with enticingly unforgettable riffs, gravel-soaked vocal soul and sheer swagger. Loco Paradise is their latest album.
The Dust Coda are a band who continue to achieve the seemingly impossible against all odds. From landing a UK Top 30 spot with their sophomore album Mojo Skyline, when the doors to the 'real world' were fully locked in defence against a pandemic, to producing a unique, head-turning sound amidst the muddle of cheap rock imitations (to the point of Classic Rock Magazine selecting the band's brass-infused track “Jimmy 2 Times” as part of their 300th landmark issue's The Soundtrack Of Our Lifetime list, alongside legends such as Slash, AC/DC and Deep Purple).
Since then, these London-based trailblazers have continued to blazon their rich rock 'n' roll soul across the UK and Europe, making their live European television debut on WDR's legendary Rockpalast in Germany, roaring through festivals such as Kendal Calling and Paaspop Festival, and supporting Smith & Kotzen (of Iron Maiden and Poison fame, respectively) across the UK. All the while, the band have been cooking up an album that underlines their beloved signature sound whilst also transcending the songwriting prowess that Mojo Skyline so chiseled into the band's legend.
Sleek yet hard-hitting rock ‘n’ roll rooted in blues soul, the Dust Coda clutch the echoes of rock ‘n’ roll’s most beloved household names, from the pure, raw poetry of Led Zeppelin to the nasty muscle of Guns N’ Roses, and bring them kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
From the raging opener and lead single “Road To Hell” through to the brooding closer “It Won’t Be Long,” Loco Paradise brings to the fore timeless songwriting akin to the likes of what Guns N’ Roses and Faces are championed for. The album offers a kaleidoscope of rock across hard-hitting shockwaves of punk voltage, blues-drenched power anthems and atmospheric acoustic sunbursts.
