While it's been a huge 12 months for enigmatic Australian musician D.D Dumbo, I'm of the opinion that he's only just scratched the surface of what will be a huge musical career. Having just released his debut EP through the influential label Blue Rider (which introduced the world to Jaguar Ma and Kilo Kish), he's just returned to Australia after an appearance at SXSW.
While I've already featured singles "Tropical Oceans" and "I Woke Up Covered in Sand," today I'm touching on my favorite track from the EP, "Dinghy." A disjointed piece of music that shifts tempos repeatedly, it nonetheless has an incredible ability to entice and intrigue. Everything about the way D.D Dumbo creates music is unique -- from his 12-string guitar and loop pedals to his enthralling vocals. This will serve him well in an industry overflowing with copycat artists.
His star will continue to rise over the coming months with supports for St Vincent (in Australia) and Tame Impala (in the UK). His debut self-titled release can be enjoyed in full here.
