Bio

Two years after their debut self-titled album, Brisbane band Dumb Things return with the first taste of their sophomore album, Time Again. ‘Today Tonight’ polishes the sunburnt pop patented on their debut to a sheen, but leaves the edges on. The luminous guitars swirl around one another, underpinned by lyrics that cast a simultaneously romantic and cynical eye on the work, tv, sleep, repeat cycle.

It follows the album’s equally catchy first single Crash Barrier which dropped in late-2018 to great acclaim, with respected NYC blog Cereal & Sounds offering: “Brisk undercurrents set by agile percussions make a pillowy bed for the luminous guitars that sporadically interject. Featuring less twang and more breeze, the track emphasises on the nostalgia summoned by unlikely inspirations.”

it's like the softer song on a dick diver album that everyone falls head over heels for.

A very pleasing jangle that's so unexpectedly potent that it'll have carabiner'd itself to your jeans without you even realising.
