"The Line of Best Fit- TLOBF"

The nom de plume of London based producer, re-mixer and singer Laura Bettinson, Dimbleby and Capper’s swirling, distorted debut single ‘Let You Go’ is an irresistibly captivating slice of gritty electro-pop.

Opening with smooth, half-spoken lyrics and fluttering guitar echoes, the song is a jagged 3:58 minute battle between anthemic pop, ambient electronica and post-rock. Awash with femme-fatale vocals, the track sees crackling synths bubble beneath fuzzy, reverberating guitars and a momentous deep, hollow bass rhythm. Earthy and psychedelic, Bettinson’s complexly layered instrumentals twist around her sultry inflections and infectious melodies. Dynamic, brooding and cautiously hopeful the forthcoming release is tinged with a frustrated romanticism: the staccato samples and weighty beats perfectly conjuring up a dizzying, disorientated state of mind.

Having self-released her debut EP Slick Maturity in 2009, the young songwriter’s percussion driven, organic D.I.Y pop has already caught the attention of Huw Stephens and earnt her support slots with the likes of Local Natives and Chew Lips. And if the eccentricities of ‘Let You Go’ and forthcoming b-side ‘Raise It Right’ are anything to go by then we have a lot to look forward to from D&C’s next musical creation. - TLOBF

"Line Out"

We do like some Dimbleby & Capper.

Laura Bettinson's young London-based project, only a couple of years old and with a debut about to come, is steeped in makeshift fashion attacks, multi-layered junkyard beats, and a tottering dissatisfaction for the greys and grunts of the world, musically or otherwise.

There's something about Dimbleby & Capper. These are the sort of songs that are already arrestingly difficult, but also touch on heart and promise and, fortunately, essential humor, music from a benevolent anti-popstar that's led around a wasteland of wonders by a voice that leaps from cold indifference to brimming underdog joy in the time it takes you put a sock on, bent but playful, like an eight year-old finger-painting genitals over an Andrei Tarkovsky film.

The first single from her upcoming album is called "Let You Go", which features low-budget harlequin warehouse cannibals and pink-powder fights. All fun and undertone.

Or, as described by a fan, 'Some slightly sinister, Victorian, Georgian, circus, theatre, street-urchin, ragamuffin gone fluorescently wrong.'

The way it transforms around the 50-second mark? Tremendous.

Wood knocked against any disappointment waiting in the wings.

We really do like some Dimbleby & Capper. - The Stranger


“Long time RFB favourite and be-sequined femme fatale delivers another exceptional vocal performance that soars above the fuzzy bass and whirring guitars.” – RockFeedBack - Rockfeedback

“Bettinson's voice and stage demeanor oozes a sneaky, sheepish femme fatale-itude that’s utterly beguiling and has understandably caused quite a stir….” – Drowned In Sound - Drowned in Sound

Once a one-women project D&C, since it’s conception in 2009, has flourished into a creative company encompassing music, design, fashion and their renowned D.I.Y parties. Now comprising of a four-piece band, dance troupe with a plethora of costumes, D&C live shows are a captivating spectacle waiting to be witnessed.

Following the underground critical acclaim of her self-released 2009 debut EP Slick Maturity, Bettinson continues to demonstrate her dynamic and original approach to songwriting and production, effortlessly exhibited on her debut single Let You Go and forthcoming debut album set to drop late 2011. Credibly bridging the gap between uplifting pop and underground electronica, D&C has gained fans in respected names as Groove Armada and Band of Skulls, both of whom she has provided remixes. As well as the “6th member of Radiohead” producer and Atom’s For Peace member, Nigel Godrich, with whom D&C has forged a collaborative side project.

With a BBC Maida Vale Session for Huw Stephens already under her belt, performances at Latitude and Glastonbury festivals and recent support slots for Local Natives, Chew Lips and Edward Sharpe, D&C with her soaring vocals and strong production is undoubtedly one to watch for the future.
