Australian artist Deutsch Duke (aka Dennis Dowlut) has just released his brand new single ‘So Real’, and I reckon it just may be the most beautiful song you will hear all week. Maybe even all month.
This guy’s voice is crazy, and his songwriting skills speak for themselves with previous hits ‘White Dress’ by Set Mo, ‘Wildfire’ by MUTO, and ‘Down To Earth’ by Flight Facilities, and now he ventures out on his own once again to bring us this incredible new tune. And it also comes with an equally captivating music video.
Back in 2005, Dennis was living in Los Angeles with his brother Darren. They had just signed a record deal and were primed to launch their music career together, but then Darren was diagnosed with a virulent cancer which soon claimed his life. Obviously this devastating loss had a profound impact on Dennis’ music and decision making ever since.
“I wrote ‘So Real’ about Darren—it’s about loss. When my son was born, I went through this whole grieving process again, realising that Darren would never know him.” – Deutsch Duke
