The Hermitude story is one marked by stark creative evolution, diversifying music styles and a hunger for constant elevation. Since the early 2000’s, El Gusto and Luke Dubs have been exploring the wide sonic territory both individual and group influences have formed. Their chemistry in the studio is undeniable and backed by a friendship that has seen the duo experience some incredible moments on stage and behind the scenes, Hermitude have remained one of Australia’s most endearing and popular acts.

Signing with Elefant Traks in 2002, Hermitude honed for themselves a strong platform to express their individuality quickly, while their relationship with the label continues to this day. From their debut album Alleys to Valleys, through to the flourished sounds explored on the follow up, Tales of the Drift and then of course, the music of Threads, those early chapters of Hermitude’s career saw a quick and fiercely loyal fanbase form, while the Hermitude name and reputation generated industry acclaim early.

“It’s a special relationship in that it was born out of a joint love of the same kind of music, and wanting to do something together...and believing in ourselves from the beginning that it was something we could eventually get some success out of. It was a dream back in the day, and it’s a reality now. It’s a pretty beautiful thing.”
