Dioscó na mbó are a Sligo-based three-piece with a real flair for a deliciously vibrant and catchy blend of disco, funk and kaleidoscopic pop.
Using old analog synths and multiple instruments they craft insanely catchy, extremely addictive and pretty brilliant music designed to make people dance. While previous singles ‘Dioscó na mbó’ and ‘Brassanova’ fully embrace the disco/funk side of things (and magnificently so), their latest single ‘We Can Run’ adds a neo-psychedelic direction. A heady swirl, ‘We Can Run’ finds Dioscó na mbó sifting through a warm and fluffy haze of soft but lively drum rhythms, subtle grooves, baggy-esque beats, sweet melodies and ravey euphoric undertones. The trio’s musical vision is overwhelmingly bright, uplifting and optimistic – and the bringer of feel-good vibes. There are shades of a more tempered Jagwar Ma or Bad Sounds, with a touch of Super Furry Animals or The Beta Band. Great company to be in yes but it isn’t without merit, this is superb stuff.
You can check out the warm and fluffy aural feast that is their latest single, ‘We Can Run’, below – along with the playful and addicting ‘Dioscó na mbó’ and ‘Brassanova’.
