D.D Dumbo - Walrus

D.D Dumbo - Walrus
D.D. Dumbo’s output stretches back to 2013, when he released his self-recorded debut EP, Tropical Oceans. Led by the spooky strut of the title-track, the lo-fi four song-set of blues-laced, deconstructed pop, announced Perry as an exciting newcomer fluent in a language all his own. D.D Dumbo made an impression at the 2013 SXSW Music conference. In the following 12 months he was invited to support the likes of Warpaint, Tune-Yards, St Vincent, Jungle & Iron & Wine. Soon after D.D Dumbo signed to 4AD, and in 2014 he toured the UK for the first time, supporting both Daughter and Tame Impala. He played Splendour in the Grass in Australia, and returned to Europe for a handful of dates (including a slot at Pitchfork Paris), as well as a debut tour of the US to much acclaim.

Utopia Defeated is an epic, sprawling opus that sprung from the imagination of Castlemaine's Oliver Hugh Perry and was written and performed almost entirely by him. Recorded at 4AD’s London Studios, and recorded, engineered and produced by Perry and 4AD’s resident engineer Fabian Prynn, the 10 track album hurdles effortlessly over the expectations set by his intriguing debut EP.

About this track...

The strikingly unplaceable nature of 'Walrus' is the sound of Perry wrestling to make the intangible, tangible. It’s illustrative of the double-think Perry needs to create D.D. Dumbo - long hours of meticulous work, to make some of the most singularly unique, playful, and seductive pop music of recent times.
