Former Wheat guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Ricky Brennan had been playing on & off with childhood friends Derek Dutra & Brad Archer since their teenage garage band years. Duresse began to quietly take shape while Ricky was in between road trips with Wheat. Around 2004, after nine years, three albums & little sleep, he decided to branch off & give Duresse his full attention. The band recorded their debut EP 'Elate' during the summer of 2005, and released it on their own that fall. The seven songs display a range of textures and moods that reveal the band's love for dreamy shoegazer Britpop and lush layers of atmospheric swirling guitars, with a dash of good ol American rock and roll thrown in for good measure. Duresse has been performing generally around Boston & NYC at venues such as the Middle East, TT the Bear's Place, Knitting Factory Tap Bar, Abbey Lounge, Great Scott's, Lizard Lounge, All Asia and the Alphabet Lounge.
