Brought together through their love of film and experimental artists such as ISIS, Hideaki Anno and David Lynch, the band seeks to present an 'installation' where sound and image interact.
The band blends heavy, progressive and ambient sounds with synchronised visual narrative projections. Through this they have developed a strong local following played alongside local and international acts including Rosetta (US), Sleep Parade, Thousand Needles In Red, Sydonia, Breaking Orbit, sleepmakeswaves, Meniscus, Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving, Laurence Pike and Headphones President (Jpn).
Following in the footsteps of progressive rock stalwarts, COG, in 2010 Dumbsaint were invited to curate their own month-long residency at the now defunct Excelsior Hotel in Surry Hills.
November 2011 saw the band enter Studio 301 with Producer Tim Carr (Matt Corby, Totally Unicorn, Serious Beak), to bookend the last 4 years of what up until now, has only been accessible by a live audience.
The debut album "Something That You Feel Will Find Its Own Form" showcases Dumbsaint at the height of their musical and personal evolution, exploring their turbulent history through a cathartic wash of dynamics and emotion.
About this track...
Rivers Will Be Crossed is a sprawling epic that showcases the band's masterful musicianship and production, in a psychedelic/progressive rock narrative evoking shades of Isis, Tool, Cog and Sigur Ros.
