The music of Dun Dun on this record is basically instrumental guitar music. There are those who find them inspired by bands like Tortoise, Do Make Say Think and others representing the genre tagged post-rock, krautrock. Then there are those who are digging the drum n‘ bass and dance music references in band’s music. And there are those who tend to pay more attention to the soundscapes created by experimenting with their instruments and electronica during the live shows. Whoever is right, Dun Dun have been doing it their own way while developing a sound incomparable to anyone in the Latvian temporary musical scene.
In the beginning of December 2006 the band spent some time in the Hodila Studio in Valmiera recording material later to be released as its untitled debut EP. The main intention behind the four-song record was to capture the sound which is both credible and homogeneous. In order to satisfy the ambition all the tracks were recorded in single takes, a technique used to build the feeling in a listener of live sound while actually spinning a CD in his/her player. The result is the aforementioned EP released in April 2007 by an independent record label SKYR.
