Durham alt-country group Fust named among best new bands for 2023
A Durham group is featured on the influential music site Stereogum's list of 40 Best New Bands of 2023.
Driving the news: Fust, a band making lyrically driven, alt-country tunes, was the only North Carolina group included on the list.
Yes, but: The musical project — helmed by Duke Ph.D literature student Aaron Dowdy — includes collaborations with some of the state's most acclaimed young musicians, like Indigo De Souza and MJ Lenderman.
What they're saying: "Aaron Dowdy and friends inject good old-fashioned sad-eyed twang with widescreen splendor and literary flair," Stereogum's review reads.
