Dutch Uncles – “Decided Knowledge”
Tricky Manchester art-poppers Dutch Uncles are returning next month with a new album called O Shudder, and we posted first single “In N Out” a while back. They’ve now followed that one up with another early track called “Decided Knowledge,” a skittering, bubbling number that seems deeply rooted in new-wave history. The song is awkwardly funky in a way that seems distinctly British and ’80s, and for some reason, it sounds a whole lot like Thomas Dolby to me. Below, listen to the song and see if you can figure out who, exactly, Dutch Uncles are echoing.
O Shudder is out 2/23 on Memphis Industries.
