Dumb RETURN with a double A-side single ‘Two Bottles’ / ‘Supersonic Love Toy’.
Influenced by Pixies, The Cribs and cult American indie rock heroes Built To Spill, their bold and brash combination of self-assured swagger, slick melodies and Dylan William’s rasping vocals have already brought Dumb to the attention of the likes of NME and BBC Radio 1.
Dumb’d two debut singles “Dive” and “Retina” released in 2013 brought an explosive riot of squalling guitars and cocksure attitude. They generated great online support from key tastemaker blogs sites and received plays on Radio 1, was playlisted at XFM, Amazing & Absolute and received extensive support from specialist regional radio shows and major blog sites with Consequence of Sound and Clash getting the exclusives.
For their first ever gig the band went straight to the prestigious stage of London’s KOKO and the legendary Club NME night before returning home to headline Birmingham’s O2 Academy 3. Last Autumn they joined The Agency Group roster and continued to build their live reputation by playing key slots with the likes of Darlia, Skaters, LSA, Superfood, Baby Strange, Splashh, Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs plus a memorable night opening their manager, Jon Brookes’ memorial night at Royal Albert Hall with The Charlatans, The Vaccines & New Order in October.
During the recent winter months the band has recorded brand new tracks which have been produced in London by Cam Blackwood who has recently worked with Darlia, London Grammar & George Ezra.
2014 will see Dumb continue to cement the foundations they’ve built, establishing themselves as one of the country’s most promising new bands.
