Review: D.D Dumbo – ‘Satan’


D.D Dumbo has released his latest single, 'Satan', which shows that he is one to watch.

  • 10

Australian-born D.D Dumbo, a.k.a Oliver Hugh Perry, is a solo artist on the rise on the experimental music scene. He has already toured with the likes Daughter, Tame Impala, and Laura Marling, so he is gradually getting recognition across the world. His latest single ‘Satan’ is out now, which is the follow-up to his 2014 EP, Tropical Oceans. 

It is extremely easy to forget that ‘Satan’ is the work of a solo artist through the combination of a 12-string guitar, loop pedals, a basic drum kit, and vocals making it sound more like the work of multiple artists. The track has visible influences from world music, blues, and pop, while maintaining D.D Dumbo’s signature experimental edge. The impeccable vocals are certainly also worth noting as they add an additional layer to the single.

The more you listen to the track the more intricacies begin to reveal themselves. Whether or not D.D Dumbo is an artist you would usually listen to, there is no denying how talented he is. Take the time to listen to ‘Satan’ as I extremely doubt it will leave you disappointed.

‘Satan’ is out now via 4AD.
