DUST CITY OPERA

Overview

Dust City Opera is an eccentric dark-rock orchestra from the deserts of New Mexico. The band is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Paul Hunton, who has been writing tunes since his early teens with a focus on (violence and sadness and humor wherever they intersect.) To form Dust City Opera, Hunton knew he needed a sonic palette that could conjure the eerie atmospheres his songs invoke, and the wide range of genres that they touch on, so he collected a group of musicians from dramatically different backgrounds who, among them, played guitar, accordion, clarinet, keys, euphonium, trombone, bass, and drums. When they formed in 2018, DCO quickly shook the scene with their (outrageously interesting) arrangements, captured international attention with the release of their debut album (Heaven) in 2019, and subsequently raised over $20,000 from fans to record their second independent album, (Alien Summer) in 2021.
