Dutch Interior – Ecig

Dutch Interior – Ecig

Dutch Interior’s latest single, “Ecig,” released on June 18th via Fat Possum Records, marks a bold stride for the LA-based six-piece. Known for their introspective, homemade catalog, Dutch Interior steps into broader sonic territory with this track. “Ecig” blends elements of shoegaze, alternative folk, and cerebral rock, creating an expansive and genre-defying soundscape.

The track opens with a fuzz-laden drone that sets the tone for its layered instrumentation. The band’s collective approach shines, with different members contributing lyrics and vocals, adding to the song’s rich texture. The lyrics explore themes of betrayal and lingering pain through vivid imagery, juxtaposing rusted swing sets and circling buzzards with the metaphor of a disposable vape.

The genesis of “Ecig” is as organic as its sound. Originally a quiet, pensive piece, it transformed during rehearsals when Connor Reeves introduced the main rhythm guitar part. This spontaneous creation process resulted in a cohesive track that bridges the band’s previous work with their forthcoming direction.

Dutch Interior’s lineup—Jack Nugent, Connor Reeves, brothers Shane and Hayden Barton, Davis Stewart, and Noah Kurtz—brings a collective history of friendship and collaboration that deeply informs their music. Their upcoming tour with DIIV, Horse Jumper of Love, and julie promises to showcase the evolution of their sound.

“Ecig” stands out not just for its immersive atmosphere but also for its lyrical poignancy, where “cigarette” and “regret” cleverly rhyme, encapsulating the song’s introspective yet expansive nature.
