The wait is finally over! After a two-year hiatus, Oliver Hugh Perry – aka D.D Dumbo – has finally returned!
It filled my heart and ears with joy when I heard that the Castlemaine psych-rocker had released a brand new song titled “Satan,” and upon first listen this track did not disappoint. It is easy to listen to and can be enjoyed by a variety of audiences, however this does not mean that the track is simple by any means. D.D Dumbo uses a variety of instruments throughout the track, ranging from synthesisers to trumpet, displaying his impressive musical range.
Signed to 4AD in 2014, D.D Dumbo’s distinctive sound draws upon many global influences, incorporating these key elements into his eclectic mix and describing his music as “a modernized, globally resonant version of the blues.”
Released on the 18th of May, new track ‘Satan’ is a burst of energy and sunshine, with sophisticated layers of instruments all intertwined. The soft drone of a sitar contrasts the pulsating beat of a cowbell whilst curious vocals march to an upbeat rhythm; as always D.D Dumbo delivers an all-encompassing feast of sounds, striking and so very unique!
D.D Dumbo has begun a tour, starting in his home country of Australia before coming over to the UK and Europe next month.
