Dome Hall – “Nason”

Dome Hall, a five-piece out of Newcastle, achieved acclaim with their debut single “Marske Woods”, going on to secure support slots with the likes of Clean Cut Kid and Frightened Rabbit, in addition to a feature on BBC Newcastle Introducing. Needless to say, they’re a band fast on the rise, with their second single “Nason” being just as impressive. This one does well in constructing a beautiful build-up, developing cohesively from an arsenal of guitar twangs and brass-y flourishes, into a briskly expansive sound led by intensely powerful vocals. The final minute, especially, shows off this emotional vocal lead and escalating combination of brass and guitar trickles. It makes for a fervently exciting sound, making Dome Hall undoubtedly 2-for-2 so far.
