Hailing from the sonically vibrant streets of Manchester, Dunebug is the debut solo project of Chi Limpiroj; inspired by the likes of Cat Power, Feist, Beach House, Soccer Mommy, Japanese Breakfast, Snail Mail and Jay Som. A self-taught DIY producer at heart with a background in sound recording, her debut EP graces the ears with an unkept and unprocessed body of beautifully elegant and textured layers. The sense of comfort and warmth is reflected in the cosy bedroom environment in which it was created, an honest and cathartic first offering from an extremely talented new artist. Working previously under the name Chi & the Twelfth Wall, Chi has supported the likes of Lucy Rose, Slow Club, Roddy Woomble around Manchester and Leeds, as well as a first international set at Magneet festival in Amsterdam.
Following the break-up of the first band, a five-year hiatus from music ended with a move to the capital, which started the journey of her latest sonic endeavour: Dunebug. After recently assembling a live band for performances, she is now ready to take her notes of folk, shoegaze and ambient acoustics to the world.
