The Dusty Peddlers are an Essex band with a classic sound. With influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Guy Garvey, their songs are well crafted and have a unique edge to them.

Their latest single ‘Lonely Hearts’ has been released with a wonderfully shot music video. The track is a dark, quirky love song about searching for love but never knowing what might come around the corner. The single was written a few years ago by frontman Scott Pryor and is reflective of today’s dating scene regardless of the vehicle that transports it.

The band have expressed their further views on the release and it ties in with the video very well:

Ever heard of a lonely hearts ad? To the younger generation probably not, it’s all swipe left, swipe right, tinder this and bumble that!”

Perhaps they have an old-school approach to their writing, but that’s no bad thing at all. ‘Lonely Hearts’ is a fantastic song and definitely has live performance written all of it. It’s track that you can imagine being played in an old bar or pub and sounding even better than the recording.

The Dusty Peddlers do like to ensure that they recreate that live sound in their recordings and worked with Rees Broomfield at SS2 Recordings in Southend to do so. Mastered at Abbey Road Studios, they aim for it to be a song that you will sing all the way home.
